Affixed to the gallery wall, this work features a white minimalist grid that contains buzzing rubber and wire components. Entirely composed of manufactured materials, this piece aurally resonates in way that is similar to rushing water, rain or a gust of wind through a long tunnel.

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.
