The Installation Virilio Cubes consists of 5 orthogonal objects
positioned in a room. The objects are made of gelatine, voice
coils are cast in and transfer sonic impulses on the materiality
of the body. The cubes make audible the passages of diverse
skateboard rides in urban space. A coherent movement of the
acoustic events through the five oscillating elements sets up
an immaterial connection between them.
The visitors can move freely through the space to experience
the acoustic motion of the skateboard sounds. Further the
haptile aspect, the transmission of acoustic movement unto
the gelatine objects in form of surface oscillation calls for
bodily contact by the recipient. The cubes can be touched to
experience the tactile sensation of sonic data in relation to
the immaterial acoustic events.
