Moswitzer’s work with free objects, freebies as elements of a revalorisation of such virtual 3D objects can be seen as statement on valorisation and revalorisation practices of the arts market. 3D printing provokes further analysis of the relation of the virtual to arts production, as subject of arts education and living. A hypothesis which Moswitzer heard as student followed him over the years: “If there are sufficient flickering black and white dots on a TV monitor, which are constantly changing it could be possible after years, after X decades that a meaningful image becomes visible (like a chair)“. According to this, Whitenoise was inspired by the random signal of old Television sets. Whitenoise is also known as snow, it can appear on any television channel. In the old TVs and Radios the TV snow and accompanying hiss is the sound of Cosmic Microwave Background left over from the Big Bang.
Some other, more analogue, inspiration was by Human Bone Chandelier of the 12th century in Sedlec Ossuary, All Saint’s Chapel, which you can also find in numerous churches over the world. The aim was to state a symbol and arrangement with human bones, which transgresses the borders between le reèlle et le virtuelle.
