The friction of the rotating steel tubes on the wooden surface causes varying frequencies that produce a constantly changing composition of sounds.
The interior of Fabrik45 does not only house the installation but is also the linchpin to the work itself. Neither the work nor the space are perceivable without one another.
A combination of rough noises, clear sounds, and minute friction sounds enter into a play that influences the auditory perception of the setting.
kinetic sound installation 1300cm x 1600cm x 450cm
The installation ‘locus motus’ comprises a kinetic staging. In sets of two, long steel tubes are aligned and hung horizontally, one pair after the other, on transmission belts. At one end, the tubes rest on a wooden structure. Driven by electric motors attached to the steel beams of the ceiling, they are made to rotate rhythmically.
seismic trail (2018)
sound sculpture/object, 40cm x 13.8cm x 12.5cm
The performative sound sculpture ‘seismic trail’ developed following a research trip in Dakar (SE) in 2016 under guidance of Mique Eggermond.
Performed live and broadcasted by the nomadic radio station ‘électro magnetic mobile’ hosted by Paul Devens, this work became part of the ‘off program’ of the ‘African Contemporary Art Biennial: Dak’art’ in 2018.
mixed media/kinetics, 400cm x 300cm x300cm
‘Dadder’ (also dather: totter or tremble) is a self-composing sound installation that displays four steel plates that are pulled up by magnets and dropped again when the tension between both exceeds the gravitational force of the magnets. The plates resonate until silent again.

"Re-wind" features a room filled with cut-to-size inflatable pillow-like bags. All inflatables are interconnected. The inflation of the bags ist timed periodically. The fluorescent tubes are connected to the activity of the blower.
In this work the visitor is invited to enter the room. The efficiency of the blow-up procedure is dependent on the number of people present in the room.

Vitamine D describes as a performative and audio
work. 12 light sensors measure the light intensity from
out their position and immediately recite the
information in form of a ticking-sound through
attached speakers. The speed of the beat is varying
according to the intensity light.
Visitors entering the room are being asked to wear
one of the sensors and hold the speaker in their hand
while exploring the interior space.

On Rhythm (2016)
The second part “On Rhythm” is a photo series which documents the decomposed perspective through/of two window frames (the same ones which are visible in the projecti- on in “On Rhythm”-part 1 and are part of the actual room).
On Rhythm (2016)
Each frame is composed by 32 sections. Every window is photographed at a different time of the day captured from a right angle at the exact height of each section of the frame. The series contains 64 photographs printed in the original size of the window sections.

2016, sound / mixed media installation, SAM studios, Maastricht (NL)
This Video projection is the first part of the project “On Rhythm”. The projection itself has been used as a sculptural media to add onto the already existing architectural structures. The constantly changing intensities of sunlight, shown in the footage, is synched with the volume of a beat played from a metronome echoing through the room representing the spacial circumstances through the echoing noise.
steng sin focht (2016)
The idea that all natural parks and forests within Europe are not identifiable as ‘‘wild’’ nature anymore, lead to a research that compares parks to theatre stages. Thereby each detail seemingly becomes a prop from a scenery that by its removal or replacement changes the whole idea of the play.
cadavre exquis (2016)
Inspired by a simple game
Aurelie d’incau, Cas Banierink
and I started this
collaborative video work in
September 2015. The goal is to
film, based on a sentence, a
short sequence which then
becomes part of an endless
storyline. The main idea is to
interpret the given sentences
from the previous candidate
freely and to provide the next
candidate with a follow up
sentence. Thereby analyzing the accuracy of sequences aligned as one story.
