Offset 5S_AV1 is the soundtrack for the kinetic audio-visual installation “Offset”, which analyzes the manipulation of the medium itself and the discrepancy between physical reality and visual perception. The term “offset” refers to a deterministic deviation from a normal state in an otherwise well-defined environment. Geometrically precise patterns are projected on an as even perceived object. Through a physical deformation of the object itself, these patterns additively change and transform into different states. Through the continuous manipulation of the medium itself, there is a discrepancy of what is actually there and what is only perceived visually.
