asymptote

asymptote is a sculptural art series that describes the convergence of technology and aesthetics. In the installation, a reduced physical phenomena is staged in an aesthetic way. Simple transformations of energy become dramaturgy and turn into stories with tangible protagonists.

a collaboration with Hartmut Wöhlbier

asymptote 1 

asymptote 1 tells the story of a sphere that is repeatedly stimulated by a pointer to oscillate on two rails. Current flows through the two rails, leading the metal sphere to close the circuit.

A loudspeaker integrated in the circuit makes the imperfection of the sphere's surface audible.

asymptote 2

The second asymptote tells a story of balance, irritation, integration and flow.

A red thread is turned by two motors in a high frequency to a standing wave. The protagonist of asymptote 1, the pointer, touches the resulting volume as it rotates.

The system then tries to correct the irritation and return to an optimal flow state.

asymptote 3

The third asymptote deals with the theme of approach and anticipation. Current is applied to a pendulum and is stimulated to oscillate in circles over a nail tip, to which current is also applied.

If the pendulum touches the nail tip, the electric circuit is closed. A loudspeaker integrated in the circuit renders this moment audible.
