Exhibited in the online group show “Endgame”.
The installation addresses the general concept of miscommunication, focusing on how it is created and where it comes from. Particularly it reflects on the “Mathematical Theory of Communication” whose three principal problems lie at the basis of the piece. The work revolves around the texts “A Mathematical Theory of Communication” by Claude E. Shannon and “Recent contribution to the Mathematical Theory of Communication” by Warren Weaver.
Due to the lockdown situation the artist also wanted to keep the work relevant and act as a witness to the shifting in our ways of communicating, which increases the chances of misunderstanding. For this reason, she collect the data material for the sound piece directly form people form all over the world through surveys instead of using pre-existing information.
