Interactive Installation, 2006
An updated barrel-organ is the centerpiece of this project. It features fully digitized playlist management, human resources management and social skills, which enable the modern barrel-organ entrepreneur to administer his musical affairs in a more effective and thus profitmaximizing way.
This project is a satiric take on the pressures of resource optimization and individualization in an increasingly digitized world. In these times of mobile MP3 players, even barrel-organists have to come up with something new: the digital barrel-organ!
Die digitale Drehorgel was shown at the Ars Electronica Festival 2006.
