Sammanfattning (abstract):
« Yet Each Man Kills The Thing He Loves » alludes to three specific verses from « The Ballad of The Reading Gaol » by C.3.3 (Oscar Wilde), and that taken out of context, opens to other rooms. The whole poem consists of 109 verses of six lines each. I translated the poem into morse code. Morse coding consists of rhythmic combinations of dots, dashes and spaces. Through a necessary simplification of the process, the dots must be omitted, and left I only had the position of the dashes and the spaces in the lines to work from. For each dash in the morse code system, I fabricated a kind of coil. The position of the dashes in this code scripture indicates the placement of the coils in the design, without trying to aestheticize. The work resulted into a spatial installation in relation to a specific room of 60 sqm. It is about 20 meters long, with all individual verses with its own assembly, where the longest measures approx 155 cm and the shortest about 80 cm.
