Damaged Goods : Exhibition Works

HARDDISKO by Valentina Vuksic (DE)
Rhythmic noises are evolving from sixteen hard drives, which are orchestrated through simple power circuits. By cutting the harddisk's power in varying sequences and amplifying the peculiar sound characteristics of each drive, an unpredictable acoustic and visual interplay is taking place

SHOCKBOT by 5voltcore (AU)
Errors are recognized as a command and in an attempt to interpret this disinformation, the computer creates, together with the shockbot, random pictures on the display. As the damage to the computer increases, there is a proportional rise of dysfunction to the control signal.

VSSTV by Gebhard Sengmuller (AU)
VSSTV uses broadcasts from this historic public domain television system - available anytime over freely accessible frequencies - and regular bubble wrap to construct an analogous system in which the packing material functions as the aperture mask.

OVERHEADBOTS by Christian Faubel (DE)
Overheadbots are like a little ecosystem, once the overhead is turned on they operate without any further intervention.
The projected screen is a 2 dimensional window to this world on the overhead projector, a world with real collisions, and unforeseeable events.

MY ARTPIECE by Malte Steiner (DE)
This installation relies on the visitor to share content from his or her mobile phone via bluetooth. Pictures can be sent to the installation via Bluetooth, and are used to create animated visuals by overlaying and processing. In return it sends back a current snapshot of the modified data.

M.I.L.F. by by Darsha Hewitt (CA) & Stephanie Brodeur (CA)
M.I.L.F. encourages willing participants to liberate their ‘personal magnetic identity’ by swiping their personal magnetic stripe card through a card reader that securely reads and outputs the data, resulting in an abstract sound sequence, specific to the card, to reveal the uniqueness of the participant’s identity.

DRAWING BY NUMBERS by Alexandre Castonguay (CA)
The project reclaims an old plotter to make drawings on a long roll of paper. The drawings are based on the image analysis of visitor's movements, when people make gestures the divergence from a set of model attitudes will be analyzed by a program. The plotter will record the results as an outline drawing

BALL IN THE HOLE by S. Galliani (IT) & E. Oreggia (NL/IT)
The ball in the hole is a social installation/performance where the user becomes actor of metamorphosis. Without touching anything, and just a colorful ball in your hand you can delete your image projected in front of you and see what (or who) is there at the other side of the hole. And vice versa.

FRIDA V. by Luka Frelih (SL)

PROJECT 2891 by Ben Dembroski (UK)
A computer is used to translate the Morse code to commands that can used to drive events on anything from a web server to micro controller based devices. In this instance, an installation will be setup which translates the code to a series of light, sound, and video events generated by the Morse commands themselves.

DAMAGED GOODS // PERFORMANCES AT TEKNIKER KROEN

ASSOCIATION OF EXPERIMENTAL ELECTRONICS (FI)
Our basic idea is, that all electronic sounds are just amplification of alternating current, so any device that can be used to produce or modify the current can be used as an electronic instrument. We work mostly with electronic waste and open it, test it, bend it and experiment with it.

CHAOS MICROMEDIAS PROJECT by APO33 collective
The Chaos Micromedias project is a new kind of medialab based on hacking & hijacking of electronics & FM/TV transmitters to make noise & images on the micro level. The sounds and images are collected in the space of the intervention and reintroduced in the context through the mobile diffusion systems.
