The installation is a collaboration between Peter Welz and the American choreographer William Forsythe. He is recognized as one of the world’s foremost choreographers. His work is acknowledged for reorienting the practice of ballet from its identification with classical repertoire to a dynamic 21st-century art form. Forsythe’s deep interest in the fundamental principles of organisation has led him to produce a wide range of projects including Installations, Films, and Web based knowledge creation.

The installation ‘whenever on on on nohow on | airdrawing’ was first released in 2004, featuring Forsythe dancing a solo. His movement is captured from five different angles (two of the five cameras operated by Forsythe himself) to create an epoch-making five-channel video installation. William Forsythe inscribes the title in space, which derives from Samuel Beckett’s final prose piece Worstward Ho.
