V.L.I.G., 2012, Artefact herproductie 2016.

Marije Baalman

V.L.I.G. is a sound installation in which you are invited to lie down and look at a kite, while hearing the sound of its line in the sky. Mounted on the kite are sensors to measure the flow of the wind, the pressure on the cloth, the turbulence of the tail, and the acceleration of the movement. The data from the sensors is transmitted wirelessly to a computer where it is used in algorithms to transform the sound picked up by a contact microphone on the line. Meditative or eventful, the live experience is completely dependent upon the steady or unsteady flow of the wind.

In the context of Artefact 2016: Up in the AirV.L.I.G. was adapted to be presented on the roof of and the Queens balcony of STUK.
