Fluid Mechanics Remix (2001/2007)
single channel video, stereo 2-channel audio; looping installation or single screening, 6 minutes
Water, wind, energy, transport, data, money, power; 'fluid mechanics' is the branch of physics concerning the behavior of anything that flows. Unsustainable industrial development has confronted us with urgent ecosystem concerns, producing environmental turbulence instead of smooth flow. The sound design begins as a program of recycling discarded computer operating system audio files and remanufacturing them into new products that comprise the soundtrack.
