Autonomous circuit, 2018.

Existing as a circuit, the installation is comprised of three appliances operating in situ to one another within a defined space. Broadcasted T.V. is received and played in close proximity to a Clapper*, which is connected to the light socket of the room. Any clapping sound made turns on and off the light. The circuit is especially active during daytime scheduling, with talk shows and their enthusiatic studio audiences dominating.

*The Clapper is a home device marketed on daytime TV by the company As Seen on TV. It lets you control electrical appliances with the clap of your hands (or any sound between 10-20Hz).
