WALK WITH A WIRE

An entire empty cassette tape was laid out as a large loop in a room, to be walked along and captured on video. Afterwards the same magnetic tape was manually rewound onto the cassette and digitized.  All silence was removed from the recording and the remaining noise (that originate from the touch of the fingers, dust and folds) was transferred back to the cassette.
In the installation the tape is played back by a cassette player and the video runs as a loop on a screen positioned on the floor, to become - together with the text - an asynchronous entity within the space.
