Computer, Contact Microphone, Audio Rack, TV
150cm x 150cm

A desktop computer is opened up and a contact microphone is placed on the hard drive. The clicking sounds of the hard drive are amplified and re-routed back into the computer which is then analyzed by sound-reactive software. This creates a self-generative audio-visual system based on the computer anylizing its own data.
If we believe in the potential of our reality being computer generated, then “SEEK” presents an example of a self-contained physical, electrical and mechanical ‘biosphere’ that generates its own audio-visual presense.
