REMAP

REMAP is a hybrid sonic drawing device and interactive installation.

A Roland DXY pen plotter, a discontinued printing technology of the 1980s, is modified and reconfigured to be controlled by the user via a digital tablet in order to explore archival sonic media. Temporalities are ‘remapped’, both in terms of the anachronistic assemblage of the device as well as the ability to explore non-linear audio playback.

REMAP engages with obsolete media artefacts and technologies, with an intention to use such past mediatic devices to help critique the impact of current globalised digital and technological consumerist culture.
