2022 - kinetic sound and video installation


A 50-inch plasma screen is installed on the floor of the exhibition space between two cable winches. The screen is automatically controlled and pulled across the floor in a linear movement between the winches. Having reached one side, it starts moving again after a pause of several minutes to reach the other side. The scraping of the floor is amplified through the screen's loudspeakers, and at the same time the sounds are converted directly into an analogue video signal and displayed visually on the screen.

The loud sound of TH-50PF9EK LINE breaks with the quiet, continuous "noise" of the other installations in the space. An interplay that immerses the visitors in this soundscape.

The title of the work refers to the device designation of the used plasma screen. It is a common device that has been used for many years in exhibition and event contexts. However, this screen has become obsolete due to recent technological developments. With the installation TH-50PHD7E LINE, this object is transformed from a carrier of art into a work of art.
