Falling Objects | positioning Systems / Pe Lang

Commissioned by ZERO1, and presented with support from swissnex San Francisco

Moving objects | nº 692 - 803 (2012) is an installation consisting of 128 motors, 3,000 rings, and silicon wire.

Falling objects | positioning systems
(2009-2012) is a custom made machine that adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the omniphopic Material. The electronically controlled pipette wanders through a square grid of 21 x 21 drops to form a micro-matrix and returns to the beginning. After approximately 300 minutes, and when the water drops have evaporated, the same process starts again.

This project is presented as part of the exhibition 
Seeking Silicon Valley at the ZERO1 Garage 
September 12-December 8, 2012
Admission is free
