-Wolfgang Spahn's unique performance „Self-Similarity“ relates to Madelbrot's ideas by displaying sonification and visualization of fractal systems. Analog computer and analog neural systems communicate with the self-similarity of Patagonia's nature on both huge and macroscopic scale. +Wolfgang Spahn's unique performance „Self-Similarity“ relates to Mandelbrot's ideas by displaying sonification and visualization of fractal systems.

 The audio-visual performance „Self-Similarity“ displays patterns and structures of lichen, ferns, moss, and seaweed as well as patterns and structures generated by technology. The data stream of a digital projector is transformed into sound, thus audio-visually presenting  the electromagnetic-fields generated by coils and motors. By hacking VGA signals, amplifying their sound and implementing both aspects in his performance Spahn visualizes the importance of the machine as an integral part of his art.  The audio-visual performance „Self-Similarity“ displays patterns and structures of lichen, ferns, moss, and seaweed as well as patterns and structures generated by technology.

Wolfgang Spahn is a visual & sound artist based in Berlin. His work includes installations, performances of light & sound and miniature-slide-paintings. His art explores the field of analogue and digital media and focuses on both their contradiction and their correlation.
He is faculty member of the Sound Studies and Sonic Arts, Berlin University of the Arts.
