"Steve Heimbecker: POD (Wind Array Cascade Machine)"
2004-11-13 until 2004-12-11
OBORO
Montreal, QC, CA

POD, 2003 is the first installation created for the Wind Array Cascade Machine (WACM) system. POD is a 64 channel installation that uses 2880 light emitting diodes (LEDs) to portray a real time 4 dimensional picture of the wind, where each of 64 “pods”, functions as an amplitude meter of the 64 wind sensors of the WACM data network. POD comes to OBORO directly after it’s European primiere at the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki, Findland, for ISEA 2004.

Wind Array Cascade Machine, 2003, is a telematic 64 channel environmental mapping and network diffusion system. Using the wind that blows across an open field or rooftop, WACM’s 64 motion sensors track the amplitude (velocity) and wave movement of the wind in real time. Direction and wave patterns of the wind are captured in the network data set. The captured wave patterns metaphorically represent the sound (sine) wave. The WACM data is both recorded to hard disc, and is streamed over the WWW, for use in Heimbecker installations requiring the WACM data set. Since August 2004, WACM has been located on the rooftop of the Ex-Centris building in Montreal.

Born in Saskatchewan, educated at The Alberta College of Art and Design, Steve Heimbecker is recognized for his leading role in the development of audio art, installation, and multi channel sound composition and performance in Canada. Since the mid 1980’s he has exhibited and performed across Canada and Europe. Now living in Montreal, he continues to produce and exhibit nationally and internationally.
