UNTITLED (CURRENTS), a double intelligent motor, aluminium, paint, led lights, water, algae, 2021
A light sculpture moves in the dark. Gradual variations in the light and the sculpture's behaviour create ever-changing perceptions of the space. This spatial experience is accompanied by the orchestrated rhythm of the machine and a custom-made soundtrack. The dynamic composition of light and sound immerses the viewer in a spherical and disorienting bath of light.
The installation at large unfolds like a hypnotic pendulum, where the spectator inevitably becomes part of the work, simply by being present. Due to this, the tension between the rotating machine and the space, between object and spectator, is made tangible.
Through the relationship between man and machine, the installation wants to reveal our contemporary position as entities that are forced to constantly adapt. How do we continuously find a new balance in an environment that is always subject to shifts, on both a technological and socio-political level?
This new version builds on the performance Currents, a duet between man and machine, which premiered at Vooruit in 2019.
