Sculpture Meets Sci-Fi In Concentricity 96
If you’re looking for impactful interactive art that looks like it’s just fallen off a passing spaceship on its way to the next Tron movie, then look no further than the neon-colored light sculpture Concentricity 96 by Joshua Kirsch.
The sculpture translates movement into light—by changing the direction of the center handle a magnet located within turns the movements into LED light, letting you bask in its futuristic glow.
The sculpture is like a physical manifestation of the experimental animation of Max Hattler, where neon patterns flash before the viewer in hypnotic rhythms. Take a look at his latest film—which is currently doing the rounds on the Vimeo Staff Picks—Sync, below, and just imagine the two teaming up to blow minds. Hattler says Sync “is based on the idea that there is an underlying unchanging synchronization at the center of everything; a sync that was decided at the very beginning of time. Everything follows from it, everything is ruled by it: all time, all physics, all life. And all animation.”
Well, that’s one way to explain the similarities between these two works.
