Contemplative Installation for hybrid analog-digital audiovisual device
They call it “Media Archaeology”: brushing off the dust from old tools from a civilisation that hastily jumped into the digital world and left behind forgotten ghosts. In Celestial Harmonies I have hacked a Vectrex (a game console from the ’80s) to bring it back to life as a hybrid zombie: half analog, half digital. I chose it for its vibrant beam and I hacked it so that I could draw shapes with sound. I tell a story about space geometries and harmonic ratios with Light and Sound perfectly synchronised in a simple but powerful synaesthetic discourse.
