INSTALLATION

All Weʼd Ever Need is One Another is a mixed-media installation creating images autonomously by self-generating scanning techniques. A continuously running art-factory operating independently of human input. Adam Basanta is an artist, composer and performer of experimental music. “These images I describe are created by two desktop scanners directed at each other, reading the way light hits the glass on their counterpart, the way light emanates from one to the other. The two scanners are fixed one in front of the other, but movement is built into them and reflected on them. They mirror the light conditions in the room where they are set: when you see an abstract pictogram, you could be looking at the moon. Or at the strip of light in one of the scanners. They make landscapes that meld the site and the tool.” – Orit Gat, excerpt from exhibition text

In collaboration with ELLEPHANT Gallery.
