An accustical and kinetic installation resopnding to humidity / 5m x 5.5m x 1.2m
Schlossmediale is a festival incorporating an exhibition, concerts and performances. An installation was sought that could sound and has a musical theme. The location was driving the idea of using waterdrops, as it was installed in a dungeon of an old castle.
The upper part of the 'Well-Tempered Hygrometer' was developed in 2013. The sculpture's 384 levers are in constant barely visible movement. Every lever is attached to one horse hair. Hair reacts to relative humidity. Hence the surrounding atmosphere dictates the movement of the levers.
The sculpture is comprised of over 4000 components, which were specifically made: cut, sanded, drilled, perforated and numerous times lacquered. The form and geometry of the sculpture was generated from the 'Well-Tempered Klavier' by J.S.Bach.
Under the floating sculpture lies a sonic extension from 2015, that was developed together with Simon Goff (musician/composer).

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
