Audiovisual Performance // 12 Minutes 10 x Fluorescent tube, Arduino, relays    F 18W T8 G13 865 is a highly concentrated audio-visual performance with a self-built instrument. Through a digital interface via software, Arduino and relays, fluorescent tubes are turned on and off controlled by the performer. Only the sound and noise produced by the tubes itself are recorded and (without manipulation) amplified. The high pitch sounds from the starters, the low hum from the ballast. What you see is what you hear, and what you hear is what you see. When the tubes are turned off, the performance is finished.
