Jonah Brucker-Cohen, ‘Alerting Infrastructure!’ (2003)

‘Alerting infrastructure’ is a physical hit counter that translates hits to the website of an organisation into interior damage of the physical building that they inhabit. Each unique visitor “hit” is translated into physical output in the form of activating a large, pneumatic jackhammer on a wall in the exhibition-space.

‘1981-1987’ (2009) by Ištvan Išt Huzjan.

A book consisting of seven photographs, all taken on the 1st of june (the artist’s birthdate) between 1981 and 1987. By opening a page, a sound mechanism is triggered.
The sound files coincide with the dates of the photographs, playing number-one hit songs from that date.
