You always wanted more in life, but now you don’t have the appetite (2018/19)

Holzwurm-Muster werden durch einen optischen Baumrinden-Scanner gelesen

A performative installation using scanned scores of patterns made by bark beetles found on trees in the Polish forest Bialowieza. The scores are played by dismantled accordion reeds, triggered by external air from a set of programmed, mechanically-run ventilation fans and synths. The interpretation of the insect patterns has provided the material for a composition that seeks to simulate pop music love ballads from the early '90s referencing Celine Dion and Robbie Williams. While tracing the love song, the reading of these patterns aims to depict the story of a wounded forest.
