An installation based on TL lamps as primary units/bit/1s. Composed in various site-specific forms.
Light reacts to body, body reacts to light, light reacts to sound, sound reacts to light, body reacts to sound, light reacts to body.
||||||||||||| is a study for TL lamps and a convolution synthesizer. (upto) 8 TL lamps representing binary bits are used as structural interventions in space. The audience is invited to “inject” themselves into the installation by touching 2 electrodes. The installation reacts to the touch by measuring the galvanic skin response and constantly mapping it to an 8-bit value, represented by the lamps. Change in bits pings a convolution network creating an unmistakably digital and opressively reverberant soundscape that wraps the viewer.
An homage to Carolee Schneemann's Hearth Chamber/Cunt Chamber
