Stille Post

This interactive installation is functioning like the game “broken telephone” (ger. Stille Post), where different self-made devices are connected to each other. The starting point is a can-&-string telephone. Information is just recorded, modified and passed on to the next device. Due to this transfer system the final output is generating new information, which is displayed on a “transacoustic chandelier”.

Stille Post is a metaphor on human communication, but it also looks like a model of a city consisting of electronic devices. Transferred information is a main part of these systems. People in a city seem to use streets and buildings in the same way as electrons use lines on a circuit board. Everyone is modifying a part of this system and every error has the potential to create. Stille Post is also an installation about the creative potential in failures.
