Verena Friedrich (de)
Transducers

Installation, ongoing, 2009

Transducers is an installation composed of several glass tubes, each containing a single human hair. Mimicking scientific examination methods the object under investigation – the human hair – is triggered by the machinery and is stimulated to react. This reaction is registered, amplified and transduced into a sound. Each of the devices generates a unique sound based on the individual specimen from each donor.
