Meander Tapes - Moon Tape - Villa Nigra


Installation, Mixed Media

Villa Nigra Contemporary Art,

Miasino, Italy

29.06 – 21.07.2019

In the form of tape loops in elliptical paths, acoustic excerpts of the moon mission are stretched through the room. Several tape machines move the tapes around the room on pulleys.

Different lengths of the tape loops result in ever new variations of the sound composition. A circular double mirror, 2 meters in diameter, floats in the center of the tapes and rotates on its own axis. Through its reflections, the visual axes in the room shift continuously. The objective reproduction of the current moment as well as the mirror circling around itself create an optical force field in the center of the installation.
