Asymmetrische Information, Series of thread collages/stitching; various sizes
Asymmetrische Information, Sound Sculpture, 300x100x280cm; metal plates/threats/magnets/ needles/motors
The metal plates on the ground are covered with 1000 magnets that keep the 1000 needles, which are hanging on sewing threads from the ceiling slightly above the plate, centered. Repetitively, three motors are pushing the long metal plate slightly up, the needles touch their magnet, create each a clicking sound, and spring back into air when the metal plate straightens out again. The sounds were recorded and played live with the drawing series in another room.
The project was realized during a residency in Chemnitz. After the reunification of Germany, the factories of the former stronghold of the textile industry of the GDR quickly vanished which resulted in a decline in population as well.
