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

    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

            Messing around in the shop, testing out the prototype for a kinetic sculpture project. This is for a 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. Since the weather is temperate this time of year, in order to demonstrate the sculpture, I put it in the freezer and then warmed it with a heat gun. The sculpture will begin to open around 73 F, dramatically around 95 F; and closes in around 60 F, tightly around freezing temp. For a closer look, check out this other video https://vimeo.com/51836089. Thanks!
