    • Parthenocarp


      from Ronald van der Meijs Added 1,954 16 0

      'Parthenocarp' is a sound art installation which consists out of 3 one string instruments. The sound of the 3 instruments is creating a 'drone' which is changing in a very slowly way by the growth of the cucumbers. Each string is vibrating by the touch of a wooden wheel which is slowly turning around by a drill behind each instrument. Because each cucumber has it's own speed of growing, the tone of each instrument is changing in it's own way. Therefore the drone is constantly changing into harmony and dis-harmonie... The work refers to the changing urban plans of Alkmaar during the last 50 years. It changed from an agricultural area into an industrial area and is now being changed into a residential region. dimension: length of each instrument: 4,5 meter materials: cucumber plants, water, sodium lights, drill machines, ply -wood, metal, steel strings. year: 2010 exhibition: Kunsteyssen, Alkmaar, Netherlands concept, production and design: Ronald van der Meijs website: www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl

        Une très belle proue, très rési/physique, sur les hauteurs du cuvier... Le 8a semble se confirmer, léger certes, car pas de gros mouv vraiment mutant, mais c'est un bel effort de gestion de l'energie (+ de 20 mouvs). Ce serait vraiment une des lignes majeures de la foret si le bloc de soutient n'était pas si proche mais ca vaut le détour! FONCEZ-Y!! Il est également possible de sortir plus directement par un réta dans la dalle au dessus de la fosse (ouvert par Michele Caminati il ya quelques semaines). Il ne manque plus que le beau temps pour l'enchainer et la vidéo suivra...) Merci à Grand Chef pour le poster du Bas Cul qui sert dans l'intro... Enjoy et à très vite en foret!!

          from soazic guezennec Added

          "While the moon is shrinking" is a video installation showing 14 sequences of 33mn in total, on 6 different screens. Each clip is a moving painting. The video is confronting on a same time scale natural simple events like a rain shower, birds flights, clouds in the sky with the collapse of the mountains, the decrease of the moon or the growth of buildings. It is an urge to contemplate, take time, slow down. This video shows 2mn 19" sampled out of the 33mn.

          • Arabidopsis Synaptic Transmission


            from Ronald van der Meijs Added 381 3 0

            A sculpture sprayed with human pheromones as a metaphor for the chemical signaling of plants. The sculpture is a symbiosis of nature and technology and refers to the architecture and plants. The starting point for the design is the fact that plants communicate to survive. Plants are intelligent and social organisms with complex forms of communication and information processing. Plants are able to recognize the identity of herbivores and organize the defense responses accordingly. More than 20 different groups of molecules with communicational functions have currently been identified. The reason that plants communicate is in a way metaphorical to the communication activities of Europol. location: wintergarden new Europol HQ in Den Haag, Netherlands. dimensions: lenght: 14 meter completed: 2011 Concept, production and design: Ronald van der Meijs website: www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl commission: Atelier Rijksbouwmeester / RGD of the Dutch Government.
