A Wave Of Matter In A Sea Of Ball Bearings
Finnish designers Grönlund and Nisunen create projects that center on simple ideas, and they use equally elementary forms to express them. Their latest piece Wave Of Matter consists of a bare, square platform that holds thousands of ball bearings and periodically tilts, causing a waves of ball bearings to ripple across the surface, mimicking the sound of the ocean.
Watching and listening to Wave Of Matter can turn into quite a mesmerizing, sleepy-time experience, but we’re sure this machine will also induce the widespread urge to pick up handfulls of ball bearings and play with them. Here’s hoping we can all be adults about this… Alright, just one fistfull to see what it feels like.
