MEDIUM: installation: short wave reciever, electro magnetism, static electricity, high voltage electricity
PROCESS: The installation is a product of my research in electricity as a medium for arts. For my most recent works I studied the history of electricity, I was always fascinated by technology. You can’t escape from it in our modern society electricity is all around us and almost everything is electrically powered, all because of a few pioneers in the early development of electricity.
Fascinated by the time and the old technologies, I started working and experimenting. Through trail and error I understood that there where three primary forms of visual manifestation of electricity; Electro magnetism, static electricity and high voltage discharge. These three forms are the pillars of my experiments.
What you see and hear in this work are high-voltage climbing arcs, each rated at 11.000Volts the produce the acoustic sound, the amplified sound is that from a short wave receiver.
Through ionization between the arcs you'll hear them interfere with the radio sounds of shortwave receiver. the arcs now get there amplified sound because they do not only become arcs but short wave frequency antenna's who bend and produce shortwaves.
