“Bits and Bytes” is a large-scale sound installation combining sound art and technology. This work is based on the use of 104 3,5“ floppy disk drive recycled from old computers.

The installation resembles a living organism: imagine being inside an ant-hill, surrounded by never-ending short sounds, clicks, crackles and tiny movements: there are endless sonic and visual variations inside a clearly defined overall structure.

This work expresses my deep admiration for the splendour and infinite diversity of nature. If we listen to natural phenomena like rivers, or the sound of leaves moving in the wind or the crackling of fire, we realize that all these phenomena share the same characteristics: they repeat themselves, but never quite exact, there are patterns with disturbances. This is why this installation is in a constant state of flux combining variation and structure, stasis and movement, chaos and order.

This work has been realized with the kind support of Suomen Kulttuurirahasto and Kuusakoski.
