mælstrom und for the birds

Andreas Oldörp (Germany, born 1959) participates in the exhibition with a work consisting of flames in glass tubing. The precisely made pieces evoke associations with scientific laboratories and sacral space. In this work, light and sound emanate from the same source, a gas flame. While burning in the glass tube the flame produces a humming sound. The main focus of the work is on the audial space that it creates, in which the rising and falling pattern of sound created by two or several flame tubes changes according to the position of the listening viewer. This work also represents the interdependency of two elements - air is the necessary prerequisite of combustion for fire.
