Record, dry point/sound installation, 17 x 10 in. (2012)

A circuit including a speaker, a battery, a nail as etching needle, and a piece of copper plate. The circuit gets connected each time when the etching needle touches the copper plate’s surface, and the speaker generates noise. Since the plate is not perfectly pure and even, the sound varies when the nail moves around, as if playing a record. The variation of my hand’s speed and pressure also affects the sound, in collaboration with the electrons.

Printed out as dry point, displayed with the recorded sound.
