N – Armed Bandit

June 9, 2015
Nimrod Alexander Gershoni

N-Armed Bandit is a game of chance that runs every night from dusk till dawn. A 7 video channel Installation broadcasting vertical wheels spinning and stopping. The wheels have been painted with letters and each time the spinning stops a text is revealed, a sort of encrypted message or anagram.The vitrine space was sealed with black vinyl imaging a large mirrored screen and the inside space turned into a large speaker echoing the spinning sound of the mechanism.
The soundtrack (By Ian Richter) was edited from sound that was recorded from the inside of the vitrines in the day time and then compressed to fit a rotating mechanism.

Each night from sundown
