Stille Post 2.0
Stille Post 2.0 is a multimedia installation in public space, which is dealing with privacy, surveillance and social media. Following the system of the well-known children’s game Chinese Whispers a machine listens to talks, processes the information and passes it on to the next link of the chain or as the last link makes the information public and confronts the source with the output.
Jona Hoier and Ulrich A. Reiterer continuously observe the noise and conversation fragments from
passers-by of a shopping window. In real time – according to the principle of “mechanical turks” – these sounds are being interpreted and published in the virtual public space – on the online platform Twitter. The observed Passer-by is confronted with the output in the next shopping window – tweets presented on a Public display screen.
