THE VOIDZONES OTTAWA - LUXEMBOURG: TAPEBOX + VOIDBAG
While the white box has been sent from Ottawa to the Casino Luxembourg – Forum for Contemporary Art - from January 11 to February 5, 2010, it recorded its journey through the voids. Once the box arrived, a limited number of selected recordings has been transferred to analogue tapes corresponding each to a particular Voidzone that the box crossed. Visitors can now take part in the journey by purchasing a sequence of its first move.
The project distinguishes two types of Voidzones.
TAPEBOX - UNIQUE PIECE [LIMITED TO 12 PIECES FOR OTTAWA- LUXEMBOURG]
THE TAPEBOXis a unique piece – limited to the number of 12 for the journey Ottawa - Luxembourg – and corresponds to a personal field of projection offering 30 minutes of recordings. The wooden box (22 x 22 x 10 cm) includes an analogue tape plus a digital version (CD) of the recorded sequences. Each Tapebox is sold for 300 EUR TTC at the gallery.
VOIDBAG - CLASSICAL MODEL [LIMITED TO 50 PIECES FOR OTTAWA- LUXEMBOURG]
THE VOIDBAG is the classical model presented as a common sample of the journey (limited to the number of 50 pieces). It amounts to 10 minutes of recordings, plus digital codes to download the sample online. Each voidbag is sold for 50 EUR TTC at the gallery.
