Toni Quiroga

Hacked VU-Meters hit resonating scrap metal. The VU-Meters are connected to a home-made 16 step-sequencer. The hitting of the VU-Meters triggers the CFL light bulbs and the CFL light bulbs clock the sequencer, as it is controlled via light. The idea is to expose the relationality of the processes within the installation: Voltage to light, light to Voltage, Voltage to mechanical forces and mechanical forces to Voltage. The feedback between different forces is exposed.
