As visual basic material to be displayed on the BIX Facade of the Kunsthaus Graz, the newly created video int.5_27/G.S.I.L.XXX (visuals: Lia, sound: @c), being part of the commissioned Edition Medienturm, is adapted according to the location’s characteristics.

The application which generates the visualization is produced by means of Macromedia Director and a Sound Xtra (plugin/extention) by Geoff Smith. It reacts on an external sound source, in this case on the passers-by/environment’s noise outside the Kunsthaus. For this purpose, a directional radio microphone will be installed at the neighbouring main bridge. Reduced, abstract basic components react with alternating position, rotation, size and other characteristics; thus give a direct, pictorial feedback on the location’s specific sound. Lia’s intervention int.5_27/G.S.I.L.XXXI creates a temporary architecture, which lets appear concepts of the “site-specifity” clearly audio-visual.

„The digital video-productions of the graphic progammer Lia are dominated by patterns and processes of a more complex mathematics. These form, synchronized with the accompanying sound-tracks, serial proliferous shapes, which sometimes are also concentrated in a poetic way. In the, so far thirty parts comprising series G.S.I.L., there are always two or three reduced basic patterns, mostly accompanied by the music of the Portuguese electronica-duo @c, which are tuned to the beats and bleeps of the musical counterpart in a phase-accurate manner. Electronic carrier-signals are translated - depending on the music-related input-level - into more or less dense hatchings, which virtually begin to fill the image space in an „auto-poetic“ way. The result: whizzing electronica-arabesques, continuously growing and fading, or in other words: a psycho-test for advanced minimalists.“ Christian Höller, springerin, Wien
