Erik symbolises the interruption of the human being between programmed communicating computers. In his work Interrupt, a computer receives the sound and image of another and creates a three dimensional entity based on this sound and image. The 3D image is then translated into sound again by the computers’ specific algorithm. This new sound is sent to the other computer, which repeats the same process. Each iteration builds upon another, creating an ever evolving play of shape and sound. When visitors walk in between two screens, they disturb the conversation between the computers with their presence. By showing that the computers know where the visitors are walking and changing the sound that is generated (read: changing the tone of their voice), they try to warn the visitors off, as if the visitor becomes part of their conversation.
