We doubtlessly encounter a growing variety of media information on a daily base and with increasing speed and quantity. The rapid selection of small chunks of media deriving from inconsistent sources has become a valid consumption habit. How does this affect our perception? Do the fragmented bits and parts of mediated speech, music and inexplicable noises that we expose ourselves to form their own language – a unitary message made from incoherent noises? A transcendent imperative that we unconsciously follow?
Radiosands looks into these questions by analyzing and synthesizing simultaneous media flows within a walkthrough installation space. The work stands in the tradition of the sound collage. Nevertheless it utilizes the speed and algorithmic potency of the digital realm to generate a genuinely new experience: A real-time collage of mediastreams that is distributed throughout multiple spots within an expansive sculpture. The choreography of the audio cuts and their spatial alignment is perceived as an acoustic continuum –a new entity– due to its psychoacoustic nature.
