Leslie, 2006
audioinstallation und book presentation of „Space is a place.

Two horn speakers are rotating on a high speed, thus creating the typical Leslie-effect, a special kind of Doppler effect. The soundfile used for the Leslie is the morse sound of the Russian satellite Sputnik, which is continously beeping on different volume levels. In the center of the rotating speakers is another speaker from which the two letters can be heard, that frame my publication „Space is a place“: one by an anonymous comissioner, asking me to produce a public art piece for outer space and my answer, which is the starting point for the whole book.
