Topic: Debate - audio/light installation (Read 51 times) previous topic - next topic



last month my first solo show monomorphia took place in Athens. One of its main exhibits, 'Debate', was an audio and light installation using the Arduino micro-controller. Since you guys helped me a lot with making this ambitious project possible, I'd like to share it with you.

The viewer is witness to two politicians as they engage in a debate; however, rather than having a constructive dialogue to promote their ideas and solutions, the politicians spend their energy arguing with one another. Their language is, once again, incomprehensible, causing the viewer to lose interest in the conversation and politics all together.

In this installation, each character is an autonomous and independent unit. Through the use of custom electronics, an Arduino micro-controller and programming, each spokesman waits for a short moment of silence to resume speaking. The act never reaches a conclusions and it is performed in a non-deterministic way.
Full documentation and photos here, as well as a page for the the making of.
