Computer, Contact Microphone, Audio Rack, TV
150cm x 150cm
Calling attention to the computer’s act of memory processing, a computer is opened up and a contact microphone is placed on the hard drive. The clicking sounds of the hard drive as it seeks information is re-routed back into the computer and analyzed by sound-reactive software. This creates a system that self-generates its own sound and visuals.
If our experience of reality is computer generated, then “SEEK” uses a computer system’s own physical, electrical and mechanical processes to generate primitive sounds and visuals.
