Ten devices reacted to emergent screen activity by rapping on the glass separating the office from the gallery. This was achieved using simple analogue electronics with a bank of phototransistors mounted on the screen. When the ‘artificial-life-light blobs’ moved in front of the phototransitor the resultant signal was amplified with a transitor on a PCB mounted on the office windows and drove motors with chains attached. These chains then rattled against the windows connecting the office and the gallery space thus translating light from the screen to sound in the gallery.
In this way ‘Memo’ experimented with the construction of sites of power, and the relationship between administration/curation and production/creation.
