Nicolás Varchausky: The Migration of Data and Other Life Forms
3. – 9. AUGUST 2016, 11:00 – 18:00 UHR
The Migration of Data and Other Life Forms is a sound installation that sets up a data migration process, which will transfer voices from the IMD archive and Archivo PAIS – the artist’s personal archive of anonymous voices – into a 15 by 4 meter fence that blocks the exhibition space. Using a series of electro-dynamic transducers, the voices of composers lecturing at Darmstadt will travel through the fence to meet the anonymous voices of street vendors, informal preachers, institutional announcers and street artists. By leaning modified stethoscopes against the fence, the audience can listen to the sounds of both archives – the personal and the historic – as they migrate through its surface.
