MATERIALS: 8 loudspeakers, 8 electronic circuits, 8 pvc boxes, 8 solar panels, 200m wire
MEASURES: site specific
EXHIBITION: Furreby Strand, Denmark, July 2013
Made specifically for a WWII bunker, Regelbau Fl277, located at Furreby beach at the Danish west coast, a translation of the external (luminous) circumstances are brought into the darkness of the bunker in the form of sound.
Consisting of eight autonomous systems this responsive environment examines the intensity of light using a formation of solar panels located outside on the beach. These are connected to boxes inside of the bunker, each equipped with analogue electronic circuitry and a loudspeaker presenting the solar energy as an audible and ever-changing frequency. During the exhibition period the installation and experience in the space will therefore be constantly changing, where the piece also, by several visits, invites to a discussion about remembrance of memories in space and time.
At Furreby Strand, the Regelbau Fl277 type bunker was originally sheltering a mobile 150cm searchlight and its operating crew.
'Inversion' was commissioned by the Bunkerlove Association.
