Transcript

  • 1. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS Installation – Anderlecht Academy of Fine Arts
  • 2. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS first stage [a visual installation] {aim} growing a moss wall or other object and record the growing process in order to use the retrieved data to create a computer-generated visual that will be projected on the wall {idea} give the spectator the impression that he's looking at 'living' moss, make the invisible visible
  • 3. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS first stage [a visual installation] {means} for the installation in the Anderlecht Academy of Fine Arts we use a prefab moss blanket which consists of 3 elements: 1) a felt layer to hold rainwater 2) particles of moss as a basis for new moss to grow 3) a braided steel wire top layer for the moss to be able to attach {idea} to have a certainty of getting some result at the presentation in june
  • 4. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS first stage [a visual installation] {means} for the installation in the Anderlecht Academy of Fine Arts we use TL-light for some reasons: 1) it's cheap (decision taken before we knew the project was sponsored by the Flemisch Government) 2) it generates a light spectrum that more or less matches sunlight (we use TL-D) 3) some easthetic reasons
  • 5. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS first stage [a visual installation] {means} for the installation in the Anderlecht Academy of Fine Arts we use Rainwater to feed the moss: 1) It does not contain as much calcium as tapwater (it is not that 'hard') 2) it contains all kinds of biological material and it's the same as what naturally growing moss gets 3) it contains pollutants and more specific 'fine dust', which is an important source of food for the moss 4) the ph-value is just right
  • 6. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS first stage [a visual installation] {means} for the installation in the Anderlecht Academy of Fine Arts we use a pine wood/betonplex construction that forms the basis for the moss screen: 1) a pine wooden frame was made with on top of that 2) betonplex plates of 4 mm thick (water-resistant, water-proof and relatively cheap)
  • 7. ACOUSTIC MIRROR _ MOS second stage [a visual-acoustic installation] {aim} composing a soundtrack to send to the moss wall in order to measure the absorption/reflection qualities of moss. Data retrieved from a spectral analysis will be used to steer the visual that again will be projected on the moss screen. {idea} give the spectator the impression that he's looking at 'living' moss, which 'dances' on it's own soundtrack.
