Peppers & Lazarettos / 2018

Audio-sculptures
142 marshmallows, 352 licorice, 29 toothpicks

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) and Lazaretto (2014) are cornerstones of postmodern pop history. Sweets are part of both albums. Jack White‘s vocals on That Black Bat Licorice consists of plenty licore whereas John Lennon is singing about marshmallows in Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.
Peppers & Lazarettos isolates the sweets as audio snippets and runs these through a spectrum analyzer having activated the peak-hold function. Timebased audio data is hence tranformed to computer images of frequencybased graphs. These images of sung sweets serve as constructional drawing for two frequency-based diagrammatic sculptures consisting of the very sweets. A sugar-based memorial for long gone postmodern pop celebrating Marshall McLuhan.
