Chromatic Typewriter

"By replacing the ink ribbon with paint blocks on an antique typewriter, artist Tyree Callahan has created a new conceptual instrument (it's mechanics don't allow it to actually paint) in which the notions of paint and words converge. Initially started as an experiment to apply watercolor text to a work in progress, the project grew to the resulting object, aptly named the chromatic typewriter."

Tape Recorders

"Tape Recorders" (2011) by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer from bitforms gallery on Vimeo.
"Rows of motorised measuring tapes record the amount of time that visitors stay in the installation. As a computerised tracking system detects the presence of a person, the closest measuring tape starts to project upwards. When the tape reaches around 3m high it crashes and recoils back."

YEARS from Bartholomäus Traubeck on Vimeo.

Bartholomäus Traubeck's record player turns the rings in a cross section of a tree into music. Year rings are interpreted into sound.
"A tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth. This data serves as basis for a generative process that outputs piano music. It is mapped to a scale which is again defined by the overall appearance of the wood (ranging from dark to light and from strong texture to light texture). The foundation for the music is certainly found in the defined ruleset of programming and hardware setup, but the data acquired from every tree interprets this ruleset very differently."


"Some of these works are a combination of real interactions in the City and manipulated inkjet prints which are then re-photographed." Dominique Teufen
