1. Self Organizing Still-Life [sos] Interactive Sculpture

    01:34

    from David Fried / Added

    This video documents a 700 kg. black granite SOS permanently installed in Brussels. Artist David Fried's “Self Organizing Still-Life” (SOS) is a series of interactive, sound-stimulated kinetic sculptures, which reveal his exploration into the inherent qualities of networked and emergent systems operating far-from-equilibrium intrinsic to nature, individual psyche, communication and social relationships. Whatever the scale or materials used for the SOS, they all consist of solid hand-made spheres, which are stirred into motion by ambient sound on a predetermined level object. Audible sound is transformed live into waves that silently stimulate each of the spheres into motion. The resulting action of the individual spheres and their interactions with one another are undetermined. They rearrange themselves in continually new patterns of elegantly fluid choreography. Some kiss, some spin off alone, while others race head-on only to meet with a soft embrace, or swerve around one another, often changing the path and destiny of each other without physical contact, as each sphere is able to sense one another. No two spheres are alike – each is composed of either solid stone, or synthetic polymers layered with organic materials such as marble dust and rare earth, with no moving parts. The artist infuses them with unique bipolar qualities, and an ability to interact with each other in inimitable and unexpected ways on an elemental level, rather than a mechanical one. Fried is therefore able to give each sphere an individual personality, allowing them to respond and behave differently to sound, and with each new artwork, create an entirely unique interdependent family of individuals that we can influence, but not control. Like two people would dance differently to the same music, the individual spheres interact in a unique, non-repeatable choreography directly initiated by its environment.

        "Serenity" is a documentary of some of my sculptural work. It is interesting to view sculpture in an outdoor setting and also interacting with its surroundings indoors. Enjoy! Lynn Demers http://www.lynndemers.com Video and Audio Production Roderick Shoolbraid Shoolbraid Media

                This is a prototype of a kinetic public sculpture which changes form according to its ambient temperature. Mimicking nature, this sculpture moves on its own throughout the course of a day and through the seasons, ever-changing in the background, going about its cycles as we do ours. To demonstrate its movement, I shot this video in our studio, removing it from the freezer and then warming it with a heat gun. The sculpture performs well outside, beginning to curve out slightly at ~73 F & dramatically at 95 F. It closes in around 60 F and bundles tightly around freezing temperature. {Music: Lower Dens, "I Get Nervous"}

                    Tempesta is a new kinetic sculpture I have just installed at Sculpture by the Lakes. Despite the name it is a very restful piece, moving moving gently in a delicate breeze. It will take strong winds but for maximum effect it needs to e in a sheltered location.

                      Described as one of the most beautiful and unique sculpture parks in the United Kingdom, Sculpture by the Lakes marries the soft beauty of nature’s wild river landscape with the more formal presentation of monumental outdoor sculpture. It is that combination of art and landscape that inspires Sculpture by the Lakes. Whether it is work on a monumental scale that relates to its environment, or smaller works, the sculptures of Simon Gudgeon are perfectly placed in the delicately nurtured natural landscape to visually enhance their surroundings. The effect is a balance, a harmony of form and context where the experience is central. Without walls, without interpretation, each person can engage with the art and the ever-changing environment.
