Living Wall is an ambient installation collecting, recomposing and playing sonic memories. The computational processes that take place are displayed on four architectural scale LED matrices with a total number of 3000 white superflux LEDs.
The installation has microphones recording fragments of human interaction. Each new recorded fragment is analysed using an adaptive sound categorization technique, determining its relation to previously stored clips.
Living Wall is a permanent installation at Studentersamfundet in Trondheim, Norway, made specifically for UKA-05 . The work was partly conceived in the studios of PROJEKT0047 in Berlin. Research, technological development and physical production was done in Trondheim with help from the Department of Computer and Information Science at Norwegian University of Science and Technology , and at the Art & Technology program at the IT University of Göteborg.
