symphony of astral murmurs

The installation is connected to radio antennas listening to the vastness of space. The received electromagnetic waves control the installation in the exhibition room. Inspired by spectroscopy, the artwork breaks the astronomical radio beams down into their individual frequencies. This spectrum is distributed to the individual arms of the installation. The intensity of the measured radio waves determine the strength of the amplitude and so the movement and sound. A simple mechanism, based on the properties of a solenoid, is used to strike a small resonating brass plate.

By multiplication a small armada of finely balanced, long, narrow arms emerges, rocking gently up an down. The vibrations of space performed as cosmic choreography, as a murmuring,chirring and clacking symphony.

Project presented with the support of the Goethe Institute and of the Institut français, the Metropole and the City of Lyon.
