NEKTON Interactive, Multichannel Audio/Video-Object installed at Platoon Gallery Berlin, Germany

"If exploring the aftermath of a post-apocalyptic wasteland that followed the digital era, it is possible to encounter things that shine and glow in their transition to new forms of being, one of these would surely be the NEKTON, an autonomous structure who inhabits those spaces in between the inside and outside of the void"   (Ran Ancor, from the press text of the exhibition)

The 6 meter high object "Nekton" was displayed as an interactive Installation for 2 weeks in the "Platoon Gallery" in the center of Berlin, Germany. The music and soundsculptures were created by Lukas Taido and played back on a customized 4-channel audio system. Not only would the sculpture react individually on different audio and video levels to people drawing closer or moving away, also the position of the sound would be interacting with this process. By using the tracking information converted to Midi-data, the sounds would be modified on different levels (filters, volume but also position within the quadrophonic setup) by the movement of tracked spectators interacting with the sculpture
