aluminium pipe (dimension variable), Maxon Motor, microcontroller, ABS-box, wire, plug, rechargeable batteries

An aluminum pipe is bent between two walls of a room and brought to vibration via an integrated programmed module. Specific frequencies defined by the measurements and the volume of the space trigger so-called room modes. The sound it produces is not homogenous, but creates spots within the room that can be explored while walking through them. Depending on the architectural situation, the object allows to use sound as a sculptural means. At Plattenpalast, the pipe was pressed against the built-in shelf construction. After a standing wave was obtained and remained a few minutes, the motorized module would lower its speed. Thus, the pressure was transferred to the shelf’s doors. They begun to shake and one could hear the rattling of the hangers inside it.
