Life - Patterns - Objects

Can the sound of a roaring lion or the images of your child’s first little steps be rendered in shapes? Bram Amendt has designed Life - Patterns - Objects: an interactive installation that can cut shapes dictated by sounds or images. Amendt has mounted a filament at a straight angle to a rotating disc. It moves up and down form the centre of the disc out to the side. Driven by the rhythm of the sound or the movement in the images the filament will cut shapes out of a block of EPS foam. Then the foam structure is turned into a ceramic object. “Only the owner will know which event has determined the shape of the object. This makes it a very personal and valuable object.”
