In Search of Lost Time
Wall Installation
June 2013, Vienna

The wall installation “In Search of Lost Time” consists of 42 flip-flap displays arranged in a square grid. Instead of alphanumeric text, the modules are reduced to colour and movement. By detecting activity in the room, the units randomly start to move until they reach a synchronized rhythm. When the visitor leaves the room, the motors decelerate and return to their initial position, except one additional module which keeps a revised position thereby creating a dynamic autopoietic image.
