Radio waves can penetrate solid matter – in a vacuum they can even reach the speed of light. Radio interference is often referred to as ‚unwanted energy‘. Sound, on the other hand, requires air and energy. Its waves are pressure waves, mechanical vibrations in space. Like when many people meet – energy is created, physical and emotional pressure waves spread in all directions.

The exhibition „time is a glitch“ explores the potential of this possible disturbance, fluctuation and modulation through acoustic and graphic interventions in the given exhibition architecture. A text archive becomes a mural, assembling sheets of world news collected over the four past years. Torn paper underlines, marks and circles the small sound in the big noise. Filigree sounds criss-cross the space in waves and lines, linger in the ear and fade away like a brief tinnitus, a soft blinking in the ear.
