INTERFERENCE
Interactive Artwork

Interference is an artwork that reacts to actual cell phone signals in the gallery space. A suspended lightbulb is responding to nearby mobile traffic by flickering and omitting subtle distorted noises, reminiscent of recorded phone conversations.

After having been perfected by Thomas Edison and revolutionising the way people lived, the incandescent lightbulb often called for artistic exploration, such as in Francis Bacon's eerie videos, Robert Rauschenberg's bizarre sculptures or in Man Ray’s black and white photographic explorations. Interference is exploring the meeting point between the historically and artistically charged lightbulb with the omnipresent but invisible micro-signals that are now such an integral part of our everyday lives, symptomatic to the age of communication.

Interference has been shown in a range of different ways, from placed in an old school lamp to being suspended from the ceiling.
