In the sound installation “Movements in Possible Histories or a Composition for 24 Windows” by Martti Mela, Libero Mureddu and Otto Korkalo, the space creates short sonic histories for the visitors. These histories shape how the space sounds for the future visitors. The piece offers a clear distinction between the interactive and reactive. The reaction of the space is unique for each visitor and supports their mutual encounters within the space.

Varia zoosystematica profundorum by the Generative Art/Computational Art Class (Alberto de Campo, UdK Berlin) presents models of mainly acoustic communication in the deep sea. A number of actants (“creatures”) transmit symbols (“letters”), assemble them into chains (“words”), and express these by sound, light, or motion patterns. Freely simulating aspects of animal behavior, one may find that the strangeness of the unknown reflects the human world in unexpected ways.

Participating artists (class and guests):
Alberto de Campo, Hannes Hoelzl, Renate Wieser, Bernhard Bauch, Constantin Engelmann, Annie Goh, Dominik Hildebrand, Akitoshi Honda, Petja Ivanova, Florian Kuehnle, Ingrid Ladurner, Karin Lustenberger, Naomi Mulla, Johanna Tauber, Christian Zollner, Peter Bartz, Tobias Purfuerst.


Rorschach #1 by RJ Fischer is the first in a series of generative installations. It is an experiment in creating a continuously changing, personalized feedback loop.
