Spinne is networked audio installation consisting of four sculptures.
The piece contains two parts; the core of the piece is a program functioning in the internet. The other part contains a physical installation shown in an exhibition space.
The piece has four software programs, which are little search engines known as web-spiders. They are searching for predefined words in defined online newspapers. The results of this search are continuously modifying the audio-scape, which is coming out of the loudspeaker-sculptures. Each "web-spider"-program in the internet has a corresponding physical spider-sculpture in a gallery. Each physical spider is presenting the results from a specific online newspaper via audio.
The core of the piece lies in the custom designed software, which is continuously generating new results based on the amounts of the searched/found words in the web. This is heard as a changing spacial soundscape.
