For Coop Himmelb(l)au, working with media was, at that time, already important, even crucial. Because the transmission of media to the screen can only be perceived as a “cold information system,” the information was supposed to become more alive, and more stimuli should be transmitted — not just for the eyes but for all the senses: smell, hearing, and touch. In the helmet of the The White Suit were two projections: a pornographic film and an accident scene. In a matter of seconds, one saw a crash, while the smell of blood from an operation was “played back” through a supply pipe; at the same time, the vest of the suit pressed on the wearer’s kidneys. During the porno film, perfume was played back — “olfactory eroticism”— and the vest caressed “partially.” Much as with the Astro Balloon, the idea could only be realized in a very simple way with the technology available at the time — for example, with film projections— but could be demonstrated very successfully at the Venice Biennale in 2008 as Astro Balloon 1969 Revisited.
