Sound/Light installation, 2014
Fluorescent lamps, cables, arduino, relay, microphones, loudspeakers
Dimensions variable








The installation initial focuses on the sound of a fluorescent light switching on and off. The acoustic experience created by the electric voltage is as important here as the function of the light itself, with the sound it makes when switching on and off.

Either fluorescent lights already in the space are utilised, or new ones are mounted onto the ceiling parallel. They light up the (empty) space and are barely noticeable when integrated into the environment. However, the lighting in the room flickers. By means of digital programming, the lamps are triggered in such a way that they turn on and off randomly, and independently of one another. This sound is amplified and projected into another room whereby the sound of the interior is projected to the environment outside.
