Aerophon #2 is an interactive, sonic sculpture consisting of the fusion of an organ-pipe and a pair of bellows. Controlled by a motion sensor, the creature ‘awakes’ in presence of a human element, ‘breathes in’ nearly unhearable before it ‘exhales’ and generates the sound of the organ. Evoking a hybrid between a human lung and a medical instrument, the sculpture brings together both technological and organic qualities that leaves you considering the intersection between animate and inanimate matter.
