Cooperative Aesthetics: Sound Mixer / Gerhard Funk
SAT 22. 5.2021 / 3:30 p.m.

Students of Time-Based and Interactive Media Art at the Linz University of the Arts made use of the infrastructure of Deep Space 8K with its 16 by 9 meter wall and floor projections and laser tracking and developed various projects that they are now presenting to the viewers of Ars Electronica Home Delivery under the motto Cooperative Aesthetics. At the beginning of Gerhard Funk’s Sound Mixer, all participants stand on one side of Deep Space 8K. When one person moves to the other side of the room, sounds and lines appear on the walls and floor. If more people follow, a sound carpet is built up.
