laptops, audio feedback

A group of laptops connect - not through WLAN or Bluetooth but sound. All of the arranged computers listen (mic) and speak (loudspeakers) to each other. A programmed regulator circuit on the computer creates an audio feedback. The feedback evolves between the built-in microphone and loudspeakers of the computer. The programmed system tries to adjust itself to a certain audio level. When its too loud, the system tries to regulate the volume down. When its too quiet, the volume is raised. The brightness of the screen is regulated simultaneously. UNTITLED creates a tension between the artificial and the natural. On the one hand the artificial sound of a feedback is triggered and controlled by algorithms. On the other hand the system becomes sensitive/connected to our world by using the microphone as a sensor for its acoustic surrounding thus floating in a moment of unpredictable chaos.
