Thingy is a three-part sound installation, this project developed intuitively and evolved organically over time. The “bell”, which is the central element, is made of recycled materials and assembled to evoke a communication device. Two hammers set in motion by electric motors resonate the two halves of a metal floater transformed into a bell. The sound is picked up by microphones on each side of the device. It is then repeated by two speakers placed elsewhere in the gallery allowing the sound to impregnate the whole space, reverberate, and extend in time. I see this work as a failed communication device emitting noise rather than a message, or even an anti-rhythmic instrument.
