Acts of Polarity : Triggers
IDEA: A sound piece triggered by a capacitive entity entering its field.
WHAT: ‘Triggers’ invites you to become part of the installation by entering its field, serving you as an instrument or an extension to your body. It asks you to expose your most inner processes to the public by the means of sound, created with a distinct pattern of motion evoked by charged copper coils and magnets.
WHY: The concept explores turning electromagnetic waves into mechanical waves, exposing the quantum properties of our core energy processes while making them sensitive to human perception and scale. The installation implies the possibility of interaction between electromagnetic fields of biological entities and how they react and intertwine with space. It poses the questions; to what extent do we as individual atoms do, co-create and mess with each other’s fields, or as implied by the theory of sound even sculpt the space?
