Time capsule

Sound sculpture, 2010
Dimensions on wall: about 12 x 20 x 120 inches
(resin, wood, metronom mechanism, steel spring, aluminium)


At Mobile Institute's invitation, in the frame of the Capsule Project.

The two parts of the capsule work as sound boxes communicating the metronom's vibrations through a steel spring. Tuning the tempo modifies instrument's rythm whereas the distance between shells (and so the spring's stretching) changes its timbre.
