Dancing Particles

Lobby|4D kinetic sculpture 30’ 2017



168 metal spheres float above a water pond. Their movements conjure impressions of nature, robotic precision, poetic gestures and joy. Reminiscing the history of the city, the artwork invites contemplation through the ever transforming choreography.

The calming movement hint at the development of the city from a fishing village, through industrialisation and shipping to the postindustrial, international centre it is today.

ART+COM Studio

ART+COM was founded in 1988 by a group of artists, designers and programmers, who were sparked by the belief that the computer was more than a tool. Back then they realised the potential of this technology to become a universal communication medium. The group set out to practically explore its artistic, scientific and technological aspects and to put these aspects to use. Their spectrum of works ranges from artistic and design projects through to technological innovations and inventions, which have as a whole pioneered media-based spatial communication design and art in the last 3 decades.
