Super Market Mother Ship

Super Market Mother Ship is an attempt to reconstruct an acoustic experience made in a supermarket. The 6 channel audiovisual installation generates a complex drone through layering and reflection. Every speaker plays back the sound of a refrigerator which was recorded onsite in the specific supermarket. The original refrigerator is shown on a screen.
Through its own lulling sound and the altar-like staging of the screen, the picture almost reaches a sacral state that is only disrupted once in a while when somebody opens the refrigerator door to grab a pack of frozen peas.
