KNOT (02008)


sound: Vincent Malstaf

A strip of springsteel is connected to 2 motors. They are programmed to turn very slowly with different speeds and directions. 2 contact mics make the torsion and tension in the steel audible.
The scenario is repeated again and again however the curls, motion and sound of the metal reveal an unstable order, repetitive yet unpredictable.

The installation can also be presented as a 20 minute performance where the artists control and follow the machine via a concentrated interaction between motion and sound.
