Installation consisting of electronic objects
Magnetic Guangzhou' is a Chinese remake of our previous installation 'Shit I forgot the iPod' commissioned by the British Council for the exhibition Get It Louder 2007, touring the cities of Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing and Chendu, China. As with 'Shit! I forgot the iPod!'.
'Magnetic Guangzhou' is an electromagnetic environment created for the 'Electroprobe'. Named after the city of Guangzhou, the installation presents a chaotic assemblage of electric/electronic objects sourced from Guangzhou's numerous wholesale markets; electric appliances, mobile phones chargers, clocks, LEDs, transformers and other local fakes contribute to a sonic landscape - a sound organ and an alternative taxonomy to the apparently chaotic assemblage consisting of glitches, bubbles, drones and bleeps possible to explore through the 'Electroprobe'.
Further Electroprobe installations include 'Gijon Magnetica' and 'Shit! I forgot the iPod'.
