  1. 1-channel video with stereo sound

    In the video Formenflimmern the flickering of six windows forms the compositional framework for a coincidental music. Seven videos run simultaneously: the house and the six windows.

    The facade of the house was recorded from dusk until dawn and is shown as a time-lapse film. In post-production each ‚window-film‘ is constructed keyframe per keyframe into the house. Behind each window, a TV set is running, showing one film as the only source of light. Each TV set shows a video representing a different kind of TV program, such as action film or news bulletin.

    The individual montage rhythm of each film is translated into sounds, whereby the volume of the sound is proportionally related to the intensity of the flickering.

  4. Tessel is a kinetic installation investigating the perception of sound and space.

    Its name is derived from "tessellation", a term applied to the geometric subdivision of a surface into plane units, also known as "tiling". It also describes a software technique that allows calculation of renderings through the subdivision of surfaces into polygons. The term has its origin in the Latin word ‘tessella’, describing the square tiles used to make mosaics.

    Tessellation has been applied throughout history from ancient to modern times, from two to n-dimensional configurations and merges science and art through mathematics. Here Tessel is based on the ‘pinwheel pattern’, a non-periodic tiling coined by mathematicians Charles Radin and John Conway, which allows the creation of an infinitely complex geometry constructed with a simple single "seed": a right triangle. Here, the pinwheel pattern is transformed, folded and transposed to the third dimension.

    The installation is constituted of a suspended and articulated topography of 4 x 2 m, subdivided into forty triangular mirrors. Twelve triangles are fitted with motors and eight triangles are equipped with audio transducers, which transform the surface into a dynamic sonic space. A dialogue between space and sound is created as the surface slowly modifies its shape, our perception of it altered through continuously changing light and sound reflection.

    The project inscribes itself within the art historical continuum, from Victor Vasarely’s optical art to Buckminster Fuller’s synergetics, while continuing the quest for processual beauty in the numeric realm.

  5. “Digital Enhancement” is an interactive sound installation consisting of an electrified Symphonion Brevet No. 28, a synthesizer, an amplifier and four headphones. The Symphonion musical box dates back to the beginning of the last century and its mechanical workings are combined with digital technology to convert it into a MIDI sequencer. The original music, embossed on steel plates, can be played on the synthesizer, which is programmed to mimic the sounds of the Symphonion. In order to operate the sequencer, a hand-cranked dynamo serves as a remote control.

    Additional Information:
    2011, interactive sound installation, hand-cranked dynamo, micro-controller, custom electronic circuit, hardware of antique musical box, embossed steel plate, antique wooden cassette, stepper motor, hardware synthesizer, headphone amplifier, headphones, misc cables.
