INFOCRASH: SAT & SUN Daytime // 1st Floor & Main Deck
The installation ↄ⃝ NSA proposes a new listening interface for the information age and components of mass culture transmissions. Across which dozens of radio transmissions literally redrawn, re-arranged and randomly broadcast in space, the installation plays with the clichés from pop to information overloads that is prevalent in our society today.
This ensemble of cut-ups in flux will be transmitted across the public space in Linz creating a disorientation of sonic objects, whilst simultaneously being broadcast online where listeners can listen and comment on the result of the transformation of the audio datas.
The ↄ⃝ NSA also allows viewers to participate in the system with their mobilephones. The audience can select the different radio broadcasts processed by the ↄ⃝ NSA. They will also be able to manipulate certain parameters of the installation.
