Camping Ensemble

12 tents, 12 lamps, 12-channel-audio, lightcontrolers, 1 computer, custom software, dimensions variable, at least 500 x 600 x 100 cm, 2009

Camping Ensemble is a sculptural light- and soundinstallation that turns moving images like films into a generative composition. A movie is downscaled to 12 pixels on a computer. Twelve tents contain each a lamp that represents the changing lightness of each part of the movie. Parallel to the light, a sine tone in every tent is played in changing intensities. As the sine tones are in a row of connected frequencies, a (more or less) harmonic, polyhonic composition evolves and the installation becomes a kind of an abstract organ.
