Distorsions, in the studio

Distorsions

Kinetic sculpture, 150 x 60 x 100 in, 2013

(Titanium coated stainless steel, oak wood, motors, electronics)

Coproduction F93


    Three dark mirrors suspended from solid oak gallows deform the image of bodies and space according to their oscillations. The steel sheets adopt numerous vibrational states: from gentle, almost liquid undulations, to noisy convulsions which fragment, blur, and multiply reflections.
