From Wednesday 9 June to Sunday 27 June, the installation Sensing Streams by composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and media artist Daito Manabe can be seen in the Hermitage. The installation is part of the Holland Festival program. In Sensing Streams, the composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, together with the media artist Daito Manabe, render electromagnetic waves visible and audible. Antennas located in the church hall of the Hermitage will pick up these waves, receiving mobile phone, Wi-Fi, digital television and radio signals in real-time. A computer then turns these into a live digital audio-visual work of art that will be shown on a large screen and played through multiple speakers. With hypnotic, constantly changing digital sounds and visuals, Sakamoto and Manabe show us an invisible but essential infrastructure that is one of the many human footprints on this planet.
