STREAMERS: a Corona Sculpture with integrated live video streaming
(planned for Vienna in May 2021).
The structure is copy of the orginal Pest Sculpture
(Pestsäule : Dreifältigkeitssäule) situated on the Viennese Graben.
Streamers is also built as a participative public sculpture made out of recycled loudspeakers, tube radios, hifi furniture and modern interactive media. SPEAKERS SCULPTURES are interactive sound sculptures by Berlin-based artist Benoît Maubrey. They are conceived on site and reflect their local environment and are constructed from up to 3000 recycled loudspeakers (all connected). The sculptures can function both as a mobile “Speakers Corner“ — a “hotspot“ for local participation and self-expression but also as a forum for small events and concerts.
The public, local artists, musicians, choral groups and organisations can participate by relaying songs and messages via Bluetooth and individual Smartphones, or by connecting their devices, microphone, and instruments via a direct “line in.” People can also call up the sculpture via two telephone numbers and talk through it for 3 minutes. Also “Audio “ twitter messages are played live through the sculpture. Additionally it can be used as PA system for events, DJs, and small concerts.
