Performance: Digitally animated image and sound structure generated by an algorithm
City material: Architecture / Website
Image-production: Camera, computer, software, projection 3 x 20.000 ANSI Lumen 3-Chip DLP
Sound-production: Software, computer, sound system

The acronym cc stands for a variety of terms. Probably the most obvious meaning is the term ‘carbon copy’, as it is used when using e-mails. Originally, it is a carbon copy, an abrasion, an analogue, imperfect copy with individual characteristics. cc: uses this approach in many ways: The projected image material shows in particular photos of the roof of the Lüdenscheid Culture House. The Kulturhaus (roof) is confronted in cc: with copies of itself, with sections, enlargements, distortions, etc., whose changing forms are derived from the geometric construction of the roof, not purely formal, but want to be understood as abstract references to the selection and interpretation of cultural events on site. The roof collects, filters, fragments etc. and is also deformed vice versa. cc’s sound component consists of a mixture of electronic and concrete sounds. The concrete sounds are primarily based on voice recordings of fragments of Lüdenscheid’s city history and are copied, modified and assembled live according to the carbon-copy principle. The result is an organism, an image-sound-machine that never stands still and incessantly generates digital content, the decoding of which is the responsibility of the viewer.
