Exhibition at Großer Wasserspeicher
Belforter Strasse, Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg
U2 Senefelderplatz, M2 Metzer Strasse

Vernissage : September 17, 2010, 18.00h

From a depth of ca. 700m down, the sea is completely dark, the only light sources being bioluminescent animals; it is plausible to assume that much communication in this habitat is acoustic. Inspired by the work of Louis Bec and Vilem Flusser, we created models of this communicative behavior: A number of actants ("creatures") transmit symbols ("letters") to each other, assemble them into longer chains ("words"), and sometimes express these words by emitting sound, light, or motion patterns. Some creatures generate rhythmic pulse sequences, some almost melodic phrases. Others let hues of colors flash over their skins, while others again float up and down in space in response to the conversation between them.
