TH-42PF20ER DISC x 5

2022 - kinetic sound and video installation


Five plasma screens are moving slowly and continuously in circular motions on the floor, filling the exhibition space with scratching sounds and flickering images. The screens are positioned on electric rotating discs that keep them moving. Microphones are picking up the scratching sound on the floor, which is amplified by loudspeakers. At the same time, the sounds are directly converted into an analogue video signal and visually displayed on the screen.

The title of the work refers to the device designation of the used plasma screens. These are common devices that have been used in exhibition and event contexts for many years. However, these screens are now obsolete due to recent technological developments. In the installation TH-42PF20ER DISC x 5, this object is transformed from a carrier of art into a work of art.
