VINYL DISC - ART OF FAILURE - 2011


Earth to disk is a projects that uses the earth elevation data. The height informations of the globe are analogically transposed on a 12 inch record. A standard turntable can after that read this relief. The chain of the elevation data crossed during the playing is directly transposed into audible sound vibrations. By every rotation of the disk, we can recognize patterns corresponding to the relief of the crossed continents. The engraving of this elevation's information on the surface of the disk generates in consequence a subtle image of the earth. This image may remind us the representations that are proposed to us since the stellar exploration during the 60's, until today with applications like google-earth.
