Metal, concrete, wood, tie wraps, noise sensitive light

The work “Hormones” comprises sound-activated light sculptures which change colour in response to the noise produced by people nearby. The more visitors gather in the space of the work and the louder they behave, the more “nervous” the lights become. In total silence, the work remains in a static condition. While the semantics of such robust, indifferent concrete forms encompass powerful stories about industrialisation and utopian modernist projects, the sculptural work itself does not appear so abstractly conceptual, because suddenly it is transformed into a being with its own nervous system and fluctuating hormonal level.
