>Become a Scientist!  Build your own acoustic jungle!
>V2_Organisation and Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes present: 'Sensible
>akustische Modules'. Under the banner 'Become a scientist! Build your own
>acoustic jungle!' three young artists from Cologne  Felix Hahn, Miki Yui
>and Ralf Schreiber  design acoustic modules which subtle sounds are
>triggered by light and audio signals.
>Hahn, Yui and Schreiber are all three graduates from the Academy of Media
>Arts in Cologne.
>In three programs (an exhibition, a performance, and a workshop) they focus
>on the relationship between humans and their acoustic environment. Their
>modules show that our surroundings are not entirely filled with 'noise' and
>subtly re-open our ears for the interaction between sound and environment.

>Rotterdam, 20.00 till 22.00 hours.

>waistcoats consisting of embedded electronic components which generate
