- 24 channels of live Internet audio, LEDs, acrylic, photocells, custom electronics and software.
- Installed at DXARTS Observatory, Seattle, WA
Survenants/Revenants No.1 is an aural response to the earlier work - A Macrocosmic Zero. In this version, two spotlights replace the robotic camera. As the beams scan across the installation, an array of 48 suspended acrylic rods channel light to a series of sensors. Depending on the amount of light received, these sensors amplify one of 24 live Internet audio streams from across Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa (the acrylic rods are hung in space to correspond with a voyage the artist took around the world in 1998). The resulting soundscape constantly changes, moving between complex, noisy textures and clear, singular voices. (See video documentation online: vimeo.com/13987322)
