People who have saved this event:


This installation was born from experiments with cut-outs of a transparent vinyl record, which the artist inserted into a slide projector, and the tusk of a beetle, used as a turntable needle.


 A microscope zooms in on a 33-rpm, looking for primitive forms of sound waves. The patterns of the corrugated vinyl grooves are animated by new stroboscopic rhythms thanks to a rotating disc. While our visual perception reaches its saturation point, the beetle’s tusk generates interesting distortions of the soundtrack. These repetitive sounds are in turn captured on the vinyl.
