The space installation "Code and Cosmos” is based on the synergy of sound and light. There is a small planetary system in the room – illuminated globes. Globes have been implanted with raw code based on photographs of various planets that have been converted to code. The goal is not to imitate our solar system, but to create a fiction or model of an independent planetary system.
Text noise, or raw code, refers to the potential to include all other possible languages and codes. The planetary system as a model injects the so-called big picture. Important topics are unknownness, plurality, compassion. Crossing the language on the one hand is like a beautiful fabric with a lot of spaces, on the other hand you treat each character with care, like a beetle falling on its back. At the same time, language has gained too much power and interferes with the adequate description of the world, so it is necessary to turn to cognition, for which prejudice-free perception and two-way experience are important.
The sound installation is an 8-channel and 8-voice virtual “choir”, which is an empty code left behind at the end of the world. Voices are whispers counted by opera singer Maria Listra in a non-existent abstract language. The voices range from lower to higher in the audible spectrum. The installation has 8 speakers around the listener and a spatial pattern effect appears in the middle of the room.
