flying machines

Installation views at the singuhr-hörgalerie, Berlin, Germany (May, 2001). Steel, speakers, motors, custom electronics, sound (dimensions variable).



Flying Machines is a series of sounding mobiles that feature flowing curves, slow movements, and spinning fans suspended below delicately balanced speakers. They have a lifelike aura and emit deep, voice-like sounds that seem too low to come from these slender, flightless machines. A study in gentle motion and organic tones, over time the piece reveals complex and subtly shifting patterns of movement and sound.
