ever become again are three sculptural pictures that relate to each other on different levels. Central to this work is the construct of time, which is an
immanent and essential part of our process-orientated work as media artists with an emphasis on sound / music.
Intrigued by the limitation of the 9 x 12 envelope, our goal was to combine our respective interests to create a sculptural work. As a result the triplet thematizes sound - and therefore time - as well as the symbolic system and the relational contrasts of material and media.
One picture consists of a small music box outfitted with a perforated tape. The tape is glued together at both ends causing the pierced melody to form a loop.
The recipients can play the music box by turning its crank.
A second picture is a digital photo frame which shows a photo of an inactive digital wrist watch.
The third picture is a tablet of about 30 x 22 cm made from cotton wool and cress seeds. During the exhibition the cress plants grow and gradually deforme the word "sound".
