Passing Information


Passing Information

Passing information was created for my degree show as part of my studies at Gwent College.

It consists of of aMDF structutre whcih holds twelve walkman tape players on three different planes. Each walkman allows the tape to flow over its playheads and on to the next, creating a 'copy cat' style delay and playback circuit. Each cycle taking about four minutes.

Each walkman was linked to one of four speakers/amps that distributed the sound to the four corners of the installation space.

The whole structure turns on its axis giving the impression that the tape is standing still on the horizontal plane.

The sound source for the content for the tapes was derived principally from short wave radio traffic referencing the first Gulf War.
