disjecta is an installation created during my MESO Artist in Residence term, comprising 72 split flap modules in either a single or double line arrangement. Fragments of own texts, snippets of recorded talks and the remnants of excursions in books and music are cut-up like on display for a while, aleatorically selected. Seconds pass by, the display time varying unpredictably until that very sentence starts to mutate. Single letters or words change, altering meanings, changing directions.
And again after some time has passed, keywords of those sentences appear, one writing over the other, until the next cycle of full sentences gets displayed.
disjecta is a textual process characterized by remembering and decay, echoes of a past in variable distance and the transformation and creation of opinions.
This work has been vvvvery kindly supported by MESO Digital Interiors (Sebastian Oschatz) and Cinetix (Wolfgang Schemmert). Thanks also to Prof. Heiner Blum.
