Marie-Laure Delaby ontwikkelde in het kader van Summercamp Electrified een site specifieke installatie in de stad: "a luminous sound painting" die door publiek geactiveerd dient te worden met hulp van een lamp. De installatie ontstond op een donkere locatie onder de Krommewalbrug in Gent, op een verlaten huis verborgen door bomen en onzichtbaar vanaf te brug. Het schilderij werd gemaakt met fosforescerende pigmenten teneinde de oude verfsporen op de bakstenen te doen oplichten en de vierkante deuren en ramen van het huis te benadrukken.
De geluidsinteractie was het werk van Jari Suominen (Finland), eveneens deelnemend kunstenaar aan Summercamp. Hij maakte melodieën geinspireerd op en aangepast aan de locatie, die door het publiek konderen worden gemixt.

The sound interaction has been developed by During the Summercamp Presentation Day, the public was invited to wait until dark (around 22:45) to discover the installation. They were gathered in little groups and given a torch lamp to explore the location. By enlightening the wall of the house, they activated the phosphorescent paint and the sound through the photo-resistors integrated in the bricks. The exploration of the site led them to an enchanted and melancholic experience of the past.


Over het geheel van de projecten Extensions (in situ) :
These projects are presented in particular locations and relates to their surroundings. Whether they are conceived in the city (outdoor) or in a specific building (indoor), they intend to reveal hidden
realities or simply possible ones.
They are the accomplishment of a process starting from the recording of the real, its integration and digestion,
and ending by the affectation of the tangible in a very specific place and time.
Somehow relating to the human desire of having impact on its environment and perception.
Furthermore, these experiments with space, are developped in the continuity of my experiments with painting, digital media, electronics and light." Marie-Laure Delaby
