Community Disco, 2010
Performative audio installation
Metal, 9 headphones, 9 lamps with red, yellow and blue bulbs, blinking lights generator, trick mirror
in the framework of the exhibition „every sound alarms“ and residency at 1 Shanthi Road Studio/Gallery, Bangalore

During a two-month residency at 1Shanthiroad Studio through the Goethe Institute Bangalore I collected favourite dance music tracks of artists and art lovers I met during my stay. I produced a 2 h audio mix that was the acoustic background for the installation „community disco“, as a kind of portrait of the local art scene. As a silent disco installation with blinking lights, trick mirrors and headphones, the viewer was invited to a collective dance, manoeuvring between the restricted space and the cable jungle.
