Paint Turn Burn

A mechanical hurdygurdy with a digital heart; the machine translates drawings on a blank CD body by the user into sound through a camera input. Every user can play their own drawings by placing the CD onto the hurdygurdy and moving the crank. The mechanics have almost entirely been built from old bicycle parts. The played sound can be burnt onto the CD afterwards. This installation is a collaboration with Corine Wiesenbach, Jan Claussen and Florian Grote. It was premiered at the Hyperkult14 Festival at Leuphana University Lueneburg in 2014.
