Here and Now, Karin Lustenberger

In Basel-based artist Karin Lustenberger’s interactive installation Here and Now (2013/2016), two wireless cameras scan the exhibition space in front of a wall-sized projection screen. Their images can be seen on the projection in real time. These small cameras, commonly used for electronic surveillance, are each held by an artificial human hand whose robotic movements follows programmed control impulses. However, the cameras are repeatedly disturbed in their recording function by specific radio signals, which lead to interference with the projection.

Schnur, Jan Voellmy

With Schnur [string], his interactive installation, Basel artist Jan Voellmy transforms sound into playful movement. The projection of a piece of string stuck on a wall with red tape channels the sounds of visitors via a microphone, causing a dancing movement in the string, which otherwise swings back and forth gently to the background noise of visitors.
