public prototype / sound installation
materials: solar engine circuits, 555 oscillator circuits, electromagnetic coils, rare earth magnets, found plexiglass, gooseneck clamps, alligator clips, solar cells, gallery lighting
For the 2nd edition of the off-site exhibition The Projects: Port Credit Christof Migone, then the curator at the Blackwood Gallery in Toronto, invited artists to make work responding to a condo showroom.
I took the show as an experimental opportunity, combining ideas from the [Lazymode](/projects/lazymode) project with Vibrations and Waves research I was carrying out at the time.
I made use of two elements in situ: the plexiglass display panels (which depicted the floorplans of the different condo models) and the halogen lights of the showroom. Solar cells stole power from gallery lighting, to run oscillators, for which the plexiglass panels are resonant surfaces.
