Nowadays reality is a highly constructed body made up of many different ideas, desires and influences. The biggest reality-producing machine, the media with all its different distribution channels, confronts us with a huge colourfulmoving mass made up of countless pictures and sounds. The question about whether what we see is real or not is neither asked nor encouraged. The catchphrase of modernity is see it and believe it, critical discourse is never held. While in ancient times, following Plato's ideas, reality to some is the dancing of shadows on a cave wall, for us it is the interplay of many differently coloured pixels on flat surfaces. Screens are our viewfinders to the world. Our perception is created by artificial interfaces. The connection between reality and man is created by copper wires and silicon plates. A very fragile umbilical cord highly dependent on those who feed it thus holding the ultimate control.
The installation explores the influences of the sourrounding space to communication. Communication in an open space, a space where access is not limited to sender and receiver, will inevitable be disturbed by its sourrounding influences. The noise in the received message displays a spatial and temporal image of the space the message travelled through. The greater the influence of the space to the travelling message the more original information is lost but at the same time new information about the space itself is present. At the point where there is more noise than original message, the received message becomes the space itself.
The installation trys to illustrate the connection between participation, ritual, sacrifice and blood. The imaginary meaning of blood, first and foremost in combination with ritual and sacrifice, as well as the participation of the spectator in relation to the creation of an artwork is explored.
