For our school’s annual student exhibition 2001, Phillip Schulze and I built an old-school installation, or perhaps “closed circuit video sculpture”. Magnets attached inside an old TV set were controlled by a sound processor (programmed by Armin Purkrabek), which in turn analyzed the levels of input sound – in our case, a CD with Phillip’s own music. Visitors could take a seat in a comfy chair in front of the TV set, and see their own face distorted to the sound of the CD. (Photos by Phillip Schulze)
Phillip and Armin built a more advanced version with Magnetstudie 02.
