This exhibition displays four installations in four different
exhibition spaces. "The Music Box", "Radiation
Sensitive Sound Installation", "3D-led installation"
are versions of old works adapted to DCA rooms. "Pneumatic
Lanscape" is a new work made for the show.
The idea for the white landscape installation came from the
lightness and airiness of the exhibition space and surrounding
landscape. We were intrigued by filling the large rectangular
volume of the exhibition space with a free formed floating
volume which is slowly changing its size and shape. The measurements
of the installation are based on the proportions of the large
exhibition hall in DCA.
The installation is made of very thin and light nylon fabric
normally used in sails. Air pressure generated by four silent
fans inside the installation keeps it in its shape. A timer
system is cutting the fan off at intervals for about five
minutes during which time it loses about 1/3 of its volume.
When the fan starts again the installation slowly fills up
to its full size and shape.
When totally filled the landscape is about three meters high
from its highest point. The landscape is connected to a rectangular
foundation, 19,52 x 7,32 meters in size. It is made of mdf-board
and timber elements, 1220x2440mm in size. The middle part
of foundation is made air proof with plastic taped on top
Radiation Sensitive Sound Installation is a bass sound system
triggered by a geiger meter which is measuring constantly
deviating back ground radiation. This information is converted
into sinewave signal whose frequency is sweeping correspondingly
The Music Box is a completely dark, acoustically softened
room. In the center of the room there is a sound proof cabinet
with a glass top and a mechanical music box on a rotating
platform which makes the music box mechanism to play a too
slow version of Internatonale, old Soviet anthem. Each corner
of the cabinet has a tiny microphone connected to a speaker
in corresponding corner of the room. The rotation of the music
box changes the balance of the four speakers and the music
box sounds like rotating around the room.
