Hybrid Nature #1, 2017
Sound and Sculpture, Arduino, Motors, Waterpump and Speakers


In an experimental arrangement abstract sound objects are created that are dedicated to the theme of nature and technology. Arduino and sensors meets wooden branch, loudspeaker meets dried twigs that are set into rapid vibrations by the vibrations of the loudspeaker. And a tree trunk becomes a haunting milk fountain that fills a notch in the wood through a temporal interval and waits until it is emptied in the iron tub, then the process starts over again. The recurring element in the objects can be seen on the sonic as well as the visual level, further thought this work is about evolution and the relationship of time.
