According to the theories of Takashi Ikegami on active mutations of self-reproducing networks the installation realistic explores the phenomenon of noise. Noise is a complex, randomly organized signal that cannot be expressed in any kind of algorithm. realistic documents the sound present in an exhibition space over a long period of time. A tape loop and a modified analogue tape recorder are used to continuously record noise contained in the space. Since the erase head has been switched off, the recorded noise is being layered over and over again resulting in sound loops, which document site- and time-specific noise.
