Cinema 2.0: Acrylic Dreams
The main idea of this project is to present exhibition visitors with the chance to destroy any object that might happen to be with them, in order to transform it into a unique sound composition. The installation consists of a hydraulic press, capable of crushing practically any object. In the process of destruction, a special microphone records the sounds made as the object undergoes deformation, and in just a few minutes, a computer algorithm transforms them into a sound album.
The project is intended to provoke visitors into spontaneously ridding themselves of material consumer objects for the sake of creating their own individual work of art via deprivation, divestment and destruction. Sound has been taken as the chief medium here with good reason, since sound art is perhaps the least material and most abstract of all genres in art.
