In this exposition Ji Youn Kang, David Pirro, Daniele Pozzi and Hanns Holger Rutz document the development of the collaborative, site-specific sound installation Through Segments. Conceived for the Graz Kunsthaus staircase, the work aims at articulating the idea of the distributed, the fragmented and the parallel through four individual, but interconnected, real-time algorithms that make use of speaker and microphones to interact with space and visitors.
The idea of the parallel and the segmented is also transposed in their working method, that allows to proceed independently, but at the same time observing and interrogating each other in regular discussion rounds in which they share ideas, developments and results. In this way they enact a sort of human algorithm that works through reiterated gestures of confrontation, perturbation, speculation and (re)adaptation distributed over several months. You can navigate this process following the development timeline on the right. Each single page is a condensation of a single step of the simultaneous human algorithm performed over time.
