'Signal To Noise' is a kinetic sound installation immersing the spectator in patterns of sonic motion, based on generative principles executed by 512 mechanical split-flaps. The expression ‘signal-to-noise’ is a measure used to quantify how much a signal has been lost to noise; it’s a ratio of useful to un-useful information in a data exchange. The works consists of a circular structure, containing 4 horizontal rows of 128 split-flaps at eye height. The external surface exposes the stripped back technology of the split-flaps and driver boards, while the internal surfaces reveal the characters of the split-flaps. The circular installation invites the visitor to plunge into a kinetic composition in the midst of the eternal calculation process of an auto-poetic machine. The split-flaps are constantly spinning on a variable speed/rhythm which is dependant upon on the underlying algorithm, analyzing in the maze of information the appearance of a word-equal-meaning.

LAb[au], Els Vermang invited to:
Multiply, International Design Conference about Diversity

MULTIPLY is this year's call for interdisciplinary networking. During a one-day conference designers, scientists and creative thinkers are invited to influence, adopt and modify their working methods and generate new thinking models and approaches to their disciplines. MULTIPLY is thereby exploring diversity in the field of visual communication and links the creative practice with the arts, social and natural sciences in order to multiply their scope.
