"der Zermesser" is an autonomous, room-filing object whose end in itself is to feel its way around and to articulate the connection between its own form and its surroundings. The basic shape is a regular tetrahedron, capable of changing its propagation in the room by means of attached motors. It can also move freely by tilting and therefore capture space.

Leo Peschta lives and works in Vienna, Austria. His main interest is the subject of room-reception and room-production and the design of mechanical interfaces between medial worlds. Since 2005 he is member of the artist-group "ZugZwangZukunft".
