Spying the TENT
"Spying the TENT./WdW Workforces " (2006) by Jean-Pierre Aubé is an in situ VLF installation.
In situ VLF installation VLF (Very Low Frequency) receivers silently monitor the electronic flow within the TENT. / WdW building. Aimed at CD-ROM drives, network cables, lighting fixtures or elevator control panels, the VLF receivers report back on the electromagnetic presence within the building in real time. A live generator decodes the information and broadcasts the data through four speakers and a 3-D model. Sound artist Jean-Pierre Aubé, has been exploring various electromagnetic phenomena via VLF since 2000, including sounds 'captured' live from the aurora borealis in Finland.
