Jungle fever (wish you were here) in Neufelden

HEIMART – 2nd July 2013 - 11am to 7pm

an 8 hour trip
we all have our way to get there
our way to remember
three times eight is twenty four

JUNGLE FEVER (wish you were here) was initiated in 2011, originally as an attempt to reclaim
Leisure and Tourism using the strategies of their consumption. The project has evolved in response to what fellow junglers contributed along the way, strategies and insights that are feeding through future manifestations and activations. It is now more concerned with a broader engagement with the everyday, advocating an active rather than a passive or consuming attitude.

4th activation of the JUNGLE FEVER user’s guide with the 8 hour excursion proposed from page 22 to page 30, as a prelude to Flussaufwärtstreiben # 3. 15 participants started, 8 finished the 8 hour journey, most stayed around the base all day. There were some visitors too. Die Station outdoor lunch area was used as the departure lounge. A new improved map was made for the occasion as well as JUNGLE FEVER JINGLE, a short video displayed in the base area.

JUNGLE FEVER is a 42 pages user’s guide in three languages (English, German and French) with a map, proposing possible destinations and activities conducive to take one beyond one’s personal borders and daily routines; short ballades, 8 hours and 24 hours journeys. These instructions can be followed literally, metaphorically or poetically and the accompanying map refer equally to the body, the mind or the environment (indoor or outdoor) as potential sites of exploration.

- Katarian Tritschler contributed JUNGLE NUMBERS (1 to 10) drawn on wood pieces to identify the 10 JUNGLE locations mentioned in the guide and map.
- Regine Tritschler composed and performed the JUNGLE FEVER song, now used as a soundtrack for JUNGLE FEVER JINGLE.
