Tin Space. Induction series #4

The series uses a combination of everyday objects, magnets and coils to generate electromagnetic charges. At the same time it explores how sound is created from the generate charge which can resonate in these objects. The floating structure of tin boxes is kept together by strong magnets that create a permanent magnetic field at the same time. Electromagnetic coils move the structure, creating light vibrations that produce sound. The vibrations are amplified acoustically by natural resonances which transform the tin boxes into sound boxes. The work reviews and re-interprets the laws of electromagnetic induction to make sounds.

Heliophone Sunlight Sound

The installation uses Bell's photo-acoustic principle. It follows the trajectory of the sun, catching the sunlight and focusing it, via a parabolic lens, onto one point. A rotating disk chops the light up into small fragments. A photo-acoustic cell transforms these fragments into sound, made audible by a large horn. The tonality of the installation changes with the intensity of light.
