Installation: Signal to Noise

Signal to Noise by Brussles-based artistic collective LAb[au]

This installation at the Toronto National Airport immerses the spectator in patterns of sonic motion, based on generative principles executed by 512 mechanical split-flaps. The expression ‘signal-to-noise’ is a ratio of useful to useless information in a data exchange, and the work consists of a circular structure that contains four horizontal rows of 128 split-flaps at eye level. Visitors are invited to plunge into the kinetic composition, surrounding themselves with the eternal calculation process of an auto-poetic machine.
