Energie_Passagen, a media art installation in public space by Monika Fleischmann &Wolfgang Strauss, reproduces the linguistic space of the city in form of a data flow. Hundreds of catchwords taken from current newspaper reports appear in a projected »information flow« and are spoken by artificial computer voices. As soon as passers-by select individual words, thematically related networks of terms start to perform in this flow, which can also be experienced as an audiovisual echo. The text is thus detached from its linear context and staged as a medial reading in urban space. During 4 weeks all actions and the choices of newspaper – what was reported? – and people – what was of interest? – were measured. Most often people choose terms like Preis (cost), Eltern (parents), Opfer (victim), Liebe (love), Essen (food), Mädchen (girl) while the newspaper was reporting mostly about Prozent (percent), Jahre (years), Deutschland (Germany), Millionen (millions), Menschen (people), München (Munic). On the geografical map one could see who in the world is of interest and in contact with the city. Another result was that the newspaper focussed on economy and politics and reported not much about culture and even less about education. Also the influence of economy on politics and vice versa can be detected from the storaged statistical data. Online simulation and archive of Energie-Passagen.de/Webinstallation
