AVO 01 is a audiovisual sculpture in form of a simple podestal, which contains a mini computer, a videoprojector and two loudspeakers. A black pixel on a white background moves along the axes of the pedestalsīs top, thus describing the surface. The digital generated sound is the exact translation of the visual. Each pixel has 6 possibilities to scan all corners of the square shape in one movement. Every possible pattern of movement is played in six different speeds and is combined with respect to one another, which yields a finite number of 36! different possilble combinations. The average duration of one flow path is 10,5 seconds, so it would take 126.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 (in words: onehundredtwentysixquintilliard) years to play the entire composition.
