The works of Amy Youngs are aesthetically-technical experimental designs. She works with materials such as everyday objects, plants and animals, mechanisms of action and kinetic relations. For some works she is developing interfaces between analogue and digital material and media. Self-referential systems and productive loops are forming, which she shows in her sculptures and installation.
LichtRouten-Project: Encounters of a Domestic Nature
This installation is a variation of the “holodeck for crickets”, which Amy Youngs realized in 2005 – small artificial landscapes with digitally simulated nature. The crickets that inhabit it can activate the scenery pictures if they chirp. For the variant displayed in Lüdenscheid visitors can stop in front of a camera in a “blue box” and be part of a live documentation of the “holodeck for crickets”.
LichtRouten-Site: Pavilion 1
The row of shops at the station was opened in 1952 and offers space for six businesses. The first retailers were all displaced persons from Silesia. With some sense of improvisation they found a new beginning here.
