BLACK BOX – An installation that plays with the observer effect

The observer effect is the disturbance of an observed system by the act of observation.

BLACK BOX is a light and sound installation made for the IJsselbiennale 2021. It is inspired by the paradox that is impossible to (just) observe a system without disturbing it. Why and when do we decide to step in, to observe, or to actively interact with a system or environment? The choices we make have consequences and BLACK BOX offers the opportunity to reflect on them.
