disjecta is an installation by MESO Artist in Residence Patrick Raddatz, comprising of 72 split flap modules in either a single or double line arrangement. Fragments of own texts, snippets of recorded talks and the remnants of excursions in books and music are cut-up like on display for a while, aleatorically selected. Seconds pass by, the display time varying unpredictably until that very sentence starts to mutate. Single letters or words change, altering meanings, changing directions.
disjecta is a textual process characterized by remembering and decay, echoes of a past in variable distance and the transformation and creation of opinions.
This work has been vvvvery kindly supported MESO Digital Interiors, especially Sebastian Oschatz, who besides taking care of the VVVV patch has realized the core technical development along with Wolfgang Schemmert of Cinetix.
proxemic was a sound installation for a defined space/room that emitted sound created by three wooden organ pipes in relation to peoples distances to a wall, using vvvv for tracking purposes and controlling three servos as valves to the pipes through an Arduino.
This installation has seen it's third and closest to the original idea incarnation on the 10th annual exhibition of the HfG Offenbach. It was on display before at the 1st Klangbiennale in Frankfurt am Main and at a semester presentation in different aesthetic states.
