The interactive audio-visual installation »Slit-Mirror-Pong« visualizes influences of physical disturbances on algorithmic systems.
Two exposure modules move continuously along a linear path, bounce off each other halfway and then reverse their direction of motion. At the moment of impact, they generate light pulses that expose a phosphorescent surface. The resulting marks glow for a while and slowly fade away. People visiting the space are registered by sensors that control the speed of the exposure modules and change the rhythm and location of their collisions. These real-time interferences are made visible in the form of a constantly changing light drawing.
