Some say it´s a vertical wave. Some say it´s visible music. I only try to make people curios.
The experience will vary depending on the sun's position, the weather, the season, if you drive past or maybe walk on the trail below. The variation is it´s strength and is what makes it interesting as an art installation. If you come by car the installation will appear as a two-dimensional experience until you pass it. Then it will suddenly give you a glimpse of it´s three-dimensional shape.
It will create a curiosity and wonder of structure and fascination of form. If you walk, you will experience the dynamics, its composition and size. The variation and difference in experiences will make the installation actualized over time.
e-MOTION is at the highest 17m and has a length of 10m. The shape expresses waves by perforating a composite wall in various depths with 2500 aluminium tubes. The end of each aluminium tube is plugged with a coloured disc. These discs will together constitute a surface that moves in the outer part of the shape. Since the tube length varies this creates a light effect caused by the difference of visibility of the composite wall.
The installation will "grow" out of the countryside. It´s placed on a rock which serves as the foundation. The installation will have an bold relation to the surrounding terrain, where conventions concerning materiality and sizes are challenged.
