23-Space


Space Sequencer is an installation consisting of printers and a fish. The space “performs” in direct relation to the movements of the people visiting it, who are being monitored by security cameras. A program translates the movement of people in the space, mixed with the movements of a fish, into a musical sequence, which is played in real-time. The tone and level of the sound is determined by the location of the visitors in space. The sound is then translated into data: every few minutes, a printer placed in the space prints out a music sheet documenting the sound of the last minutes. The visitors can then take the score in which they took part, or file it in an archive that the artist will later use for a live performance, detached from the performative mechanism of the space. In this white poetic space, man and machine, nature and artificiality, poetry and automated writing, control and autonomy, are all vibrating actors in an emergent “mise-en-scène” of previously non-existing relations.
