The increasing establishment and augmented use of OnDemand offers are developments, which create OnDemand concepts that have been discussed for a while. At the same time, a political solution in order to guarantee and promote civil social, free media projects is not in sight. The access to filed free cultural content is increasingly subject to legal regulations and is thus massively aggravated for the benefit of commercial utilisation.
The audio-visual installation Out Of Demand challenges this development in a playful way. By the inclusion of visitors the data of the Austrian radio exchange platform Cultural Broadcasting Archive (CBA) is used in acoustic examples and also visually. The visitors can search the archive with queries. The results are presented with fragile, connected lines on video. On the audio level, the results of the queries are making up sound collages out of the more than 4500 contributions of the CBA over and over again, which melt into versatile and audible pictures.
The visual part of the installation can be found at cba.fro.at/timeline
