 The sound and video installation “Entangled Pixels” is based on two video installations exhibited in different countries, which are entangled via the internet. One part of the artwork will be screened at the College for Creative Studies, Detroit (US) while the other part will be exhibited at the University of Windsor (Canada). Both cities are separated only by the Detroit River, which also forms a natural frontier between the two countries.\\ The sound and video installation “Entangled Pixels” is based on two video installations exhibited in different countries, which are entangled via the internet.

 The artwork reflects upon this zeitgeisty phenomen by exploring also the technological impact of these entanglements:​ Both monitors of the twofold installation have a live camera attached to them. The camera films the monitor'​s surface and - in a feedback loop - projects the magnified pixel structure on the very same monitor. As the pixels'​ macro structures are exposed, they appear roughened and frayed. Moreover, they are pulsing irregularly in all varieties of color. Entanglement happens since the same footage will also be streamed via the Internet to the other part of the artwork. The receiving installation then mixes the stream with it's own local footage, which will be projected on it's own screen, get filmed by its own camera which projects the mixture on the local screen, films that one and streams it to the other location - where it is received, looped and so on and so forth.\\ The artwork reflects upon this zeitgeisty phenomen by exploring also the technological impact of these entanglements:​ Both monitors of the twofold installation have a live camera attached to them.

 Moreover, each video signal will also be audible. Due to its sonification it becomes possible to listen to both videos'​ signals and to acoustically experience the noise of the "​Entangled Pixels"​.\\ Moreover, each video signal will also be audible.

Wolfgang Spahn is a visual & sound artist based in Berlin. His work includes interactive installations, performances of light & sound and miniature-slide-paintings. His art explores the field of analogue and digital media and focuses on both their contradiction and their correlation.
