CONCEPT (Installation / Performance)
I will walk around during the exhibition and textually describe everything I see, the visitors, the environment, the other artworks, … A dot matrix printer will continuously produce images as a chronological summary of the exhibition. As the evening progresses the printed images change based on information of the event itself. The artwork thereby becomes a summary of the evening, describing each moment in time.
At certain intervals I will rip off a segment of the printed of images, these will represent a moment in time of the exhibition and will serve as a limited publication for the event.
The object itself is an old dot matrix printer placed on a white pedestal, apparently detached from the computer, constantly printing results. The continuous production of images in combination with the repetitive sound, creates the impression of an autonomous machine.
