Infonoise is constructed
both as an
work. The intention is to transpose
the sensation of global infonoise into an audiovisual
experience that will enable participants to interact with it.
The work is the result of an international collaboration of
authors: Gordana Novakovic (London), Rainer Linz (Melbourne) and Zoran Milkovic (Belgrade),
supported by a team of
contributors from around the world.
is a very specific shape, which
can exist as a mathematical abstraction as well as a real
object. In this particular case it is a symbol of the
relationships between real and virtual reality, the conscious
and the unconscious, and the rational and emotional levels of
human being. The phenomenon of moving from one side of the
strip to the other in a continuous flow is taken as a symbol
of this class of categories.
is an ancient symbol, represented as a

specific algorithm, the form of Form, an audiovisual category
that designates both the universally accepted concepts of
form, as well as Form as the specific subject matter in the
process of artistic creation.
The Moebius strip (an 8m
fiberglass sculpture) forms the heart of the infonoise
installation. It provides a surface upon which daily headlines
from international newspapers are projected. The interaction
starts when the system detects a visitor entering the space of
the installation. The system responds with audio/visual
changes, thus representing the personal, unique nature of
perception of the information flux.
Online Interactive Theatre
The virtual phase of the
project is an online internet event. The virtual space of the
internet event is projected as a theatre: foyer, stage,
auditorium and cafe.
In the Foyer, visitors to the Infonoise
site are offered the libretto before proceeding to the
auditorium where they can select their viewing positions by
clicking on an empty seat. In this way, each visitor will
experience the installation from an individual perspective.
Actors from different places arround the world (Abudabi,
Melbourne, Moscow, Luxembourg, Delft, New York, Belgrade,
London...), will submit headlines for the performance - their
sum will form the plot of the play and the content for the
The Auditorium and Stage
The auditorium is in the
form of a theatre-in-round and the stage is the Moebius strip

This will be in the form of a "chat
room" where people can discuss the performance, and glance at
the texts and links to previous work by the authors and
actors, as in cafes and bookshops usually associated with
