STOA: Niko Tiainen (FI) – SUBURBIUM.0001

Event Introduction

SUBURBIUM.0001 is a space-based procedural sound, light and video installation, built on the conditions of the surrounding space.

The soundscape and visuality of the work is based on data (images, sounds, videos and 3D scans) collected from the surrounding area by different sensors. The work’s algorithm uses the collected materials as a data set from which it shapes abstract light, image and soundscapes using a neural network structure.

The work is also interactive at a micro level, with sensors placed in the space to observe the experience of the experimenters moving through the space. The data collected from the movements of the cooks transforms the algorithm, so that the work is constantly changing.
