  • Trafic @ L'Usine Tournefeuille, 2016

Trafic is designed to detect civil aviation in the area around the exhibition site and blast it right into the exhibition itself, hijacking the overhead planes, as it were, out of the surrounding air space and into an art space. Trafic “monitors” aviation activity and amplifies the noise of airplanes taking off, landing and flying in the vicinity of the art space while on the floor, a carpet of LED’s reacts and blinks to the aerial sounds. The visitor treks out along an elevated runway, in order to have a “aerial” view of the luminescent patterns.
