Triangle Study explores colour and form. The installation uses three old school 1970’s era slide projectors hacked with modern day Arduino controllers and electronics to produce different form and colour combinations based on a very basic artificial intelligence. There are 243 slides and over 2,3 million possible combinations of compositions. The artwork is in continuous change and it is stopping for one slide at a time from the time period between 13 to 31 seconds. In this version “Inner Voice” Aatos wants to listen to the thoughts of the artwork itself by capturing the sound of the changing slides and transforming it into a movement of a rotating mirror which adds yet another changing element to the display. You can also try to make a change to it by producing a sound that is loud enough for the microphones inside the installation.
Sampo Aatos is a Helsinki based artist, his background is in photography and moving image and he is about to graduate with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts Helsinki.
