'Muschel 17-87 - Birth of Imperfection'
A/V Performance Instrument, 2017
The birth of Venus out of the shell symbolises how beauty is born. The performance shows the process of giving birth to a phenomenon that humans find attractive: Symmetry in nature. Taking the patterns of frequencies, realtime patterns are transformed into a 3D virtual space confronting the phenomenon of natural symmetry and mathematics with mathematical patterns in a simulated virtual world. The birth of imperfection examines our craving for order and our searching for perfection in ourself.
Performance with Federico Foderaro at Spektrum,Berlin, 19/07/17
The machine is fed constantly with sound. To sound that it likes it produces visual patterns. These are supervised by humans and thrown on a wall. The humans examine and modify the given patterns in order to paste them in their understanding of beauty. Learning from the machine´s choices the performers try to exploit the maximum of the machine. In exciting it more and more they lead Muschel17-87 to an audio visual orgasm.
