SOURCE

Materials:

Granite, Geiger counter, computer parts

Description:

SOURCE is a hand carved granite slab with a built-in custom computer. The computer reads a Geiger counter which measures radioactive particles emitted from the granite and the surrounding environment in real-time. The decaying material manipulates a moving image platform, influencing how content is drawn from a database and live-scraped from the internet, building animated sequences that fluctuate and feedback, along with the sound of the clicking Geiger counter.

Exhibited at JCCAC, Hong Kong in 2020.
