SOURCE AND DESTINATION x FRANZ EHN

SOURCE AND DESTINATION

There is a lot that can go wrong in conversation. Whether there are external or internal factors influencing the source or the destination, or disturbance in the medium in wich the exchange takes place, the sender and receiver hardly ever are talking about the exact same thing. Both the encoding and decoding have to be very precise in order to create the base for somewhat mutual understanding. The work investigates how (small disturbances in) the means of communication can gradually modify a defined message into a string of signals lacking information.

Franz Ehn is a sound artist and trained designer based in Vienna, Austria. 

His sonic work is heavily research based and is looking at specific developments on a micro scale, as well as investigating circumstances that span way beyond a life’s length.
