Tangible Orchestra

An orchestra one can walk through:

Tangible Orchestra is an interactive installation that brings electronic dance music combined with classic instruments to life in a three-dimensional environment. Individual tracks are placed into independent, interactive cylinders that are scattered across the project space. These cylinders have a sensory system that notices people in proximity and play for as long someone is nearby.

The cylinders create an individual listening experience – depending on the number of attending people and their position within the project, different instruments are activated and join the musical piece. Walking through the installation not only means to activate instruments that contribute to the whole piece, but to dub the piece with every step: Depending on the listener’s position and the distance to the speakers that rest within the cylinders, the relative strength of all instruments shifts.

Water Light Graffiti by Antonin Fourneau, created in the Digitalarti Artlab

The "Water Light Graffiti" is a surface made of thousands of LED illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw. Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.

Wie beschrieben geht es bei der Arbeit auch darum, auf die Entdeckungen, die in Österreich vor einigen Jahren gemacht wurden Bezug zu nehmen. Das war damals sehr schockierend und hat sich ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingebrannt. Seitdem setzten sich Künstler und Künstlerinnen in verschiedenen Medien mit dieser Thematik auseinander. Dies ist meine Weise mit dem Thema umzugehen.

Eine künstlerische Intervention vor Ort hat eine andere Präsenz, als ein medial gefilterter Ansatz wie etwa eine rein filmische Aufarbeitung. An diesem Raum gehen Tag für Tag hunderte Menschen vorbei. Das ist eine real existierende Situation, nur eine Handbreit entfernt vom Alltag der Menschen in Wien – kein Filmstudio. Das Dokumentationsvideo wurde zu einer Art Prothese des Raums, die die Entdeckung dieses Ortes eventuell erst ermöglicht und ihn einem größeren Publikum näher bringt.


Geheimniskrämerei wird zumindest in Bezug auf den Ort der Installation nicht konsequent betrieben. Auch wenn die Wiener Linien bereits alles beseitigt haben sollten, wird man zumindest den Raum – den man bereits aus dem Video kennt – vorfinden. Das Projekt spielt mit der Möglichkeit eines "Fakes", bietet den Betrachtern und Betrachterinnen aber zugleich die Chance, der Sache auf den Grund zu gehen. In diesem Sinne kann das Projekt ein außergewöhnliches Publikum anlocken und eine Form der Rezeption von Kunst abseits ausgetretener Pfade ermöglichen.
