“VHS Tape Loop in a Magnetic Field” at Xenos Contemporary Art in Florence, through November 8, 2014

xenos

On the occasion of the reopening in its new location in Viale Petrarca 60r (Florence), xenos arte contemporanea presents the exhibition VHS TAPE LOOP IN A MAGNETIC FIELD by Eddie Spanier and Black Monk.

A closed circuit formed by a loop that exploits the digital technology in VHS and a magnetic field, activated by the magnets of a powered speaker for the diffusion of audio. This system ensures the maintenance of a repetitive process that leads to constant and progressive disruption of the audio and video signal supported by the magnetic tape of the VHS. The residual audio, which gradually loses quality, is channeled into a mixing system and spread through the same audio speakers that degenerate the sound source itself.
