Interpretation of Le Corbusiers Poème Electronique
Materials: Steel, transparant acrylic, arduino
“While time passes, things develop. Although some may believe that it is all written, we can agree that the life we spend on this earth is unpredictable and unrhythmical. To create development we need to work, to create interaction we need to play. To create separations and rest between periods of time we need to sleep. There is a certain rhythm, but development never goes fluently because the life of individuals is not exactly in tune and the circumstances offer different conditions. In blooming times we have lots of sources to do lots of work to create lots of development and in crisis times the other way around.”
With this small installation, which was designed for a performance at Natlab, we want to communicate the message that research and 'play' causes innovation and progress. The little mice in the factory are in this case a representation of this research, play and unpredictability. The rhythm of their actions - running in the wheel - will give direct consequence translated into moving imagery.
