Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared repetitive systems, the sculptures of Pe Lang + Zimoun incorporate commonplace industrial objects. Pieces in their Untitled Sound Objects series transform constructed acoustic and electrical noises into reverberating ambient hums that resemble natural systems.
This particular work is available in three sizes: 400, 196 or 100 prepared vibration motors in wooden type cases. The picture above shows the size with 400 motors.
