WELLENÜBERSETZER

The movement up and down of a lakes surface was recorded. The electronic signal can be played on a load speaker. Thereby water waves are transferred into sound waves. Coming to perception there seem to be two types of things: objects and the information that we perceive from them - be it sound or lightwaves. Thereby information seems to be soley medium and not part of the world it describes. The artwork turns this view around: It treats a natural process (the movement of a lakes surface) as information, taking it as a signal.
