Kryophone

Kryophone

description

“Kryophone“ is a sonorous and luminous interactive sculpture made of ice. This interactive sculpture is composed with ice and reacts to the electrostatic touch of bodies. Sounds and light evolve according to the intensity of electrostatic contact. At the same time the human heat will transform and model in a new way the ice sculpture. This fragile sculpture invites audience to question our relationship with the environment. The interaction with the sculpture is necessary in order to generate sound and light, but the heat of each touch will transform, influence slowly it shape. Qualities of shape, density and transparency will evolve according to the unpredictable melt generated by human heat and climatic variations. The sculpture represents an icosahedron: symbol of water among one of the 5 solids of Platon. The sonorous feedbacks evoke liquid, organic, fragile and deep matter.

Their works came from possible hybridizations between the living world and technology which meeting points incite them to invent sensitive and poetic languages.
