Haroon Mirza needed an assistant to help him install his show at the Schering Stiftung Gallery on Unter den Linden in Berlin. I was happy to oblige. Sound, light, and video are synthesized into a dynamic sensory experience. Excerpts from Wikipedia's entry for the Bayer AG pharmaceutical company are read aloud on the video, a handful of Aspirin tablets jump up and down in the cone of a speaker on the floor, as the soundscape pounds to the rhythm of the LED light strips. With it's history and it's shadowy gaps exposed, the white cube that is this specific gallery space is offered up for examination. In the photos is a sneak peak of Haroon's Arduino-driven control box, that hides above the door to the gallery offices.
