> DESCRIPTION

Berlin-based artist Pe Lang is featured in the exhibition Think Art – Act Science, open from September 21-November 12 in SFAI's Walter and McBean Galleries. As a participant in the Swiss artists-in-labs program, Lang completed an immersive residency at the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology. The resulting installation Kinetic Speakers is a mobile system that generates a dynamic sonic environment in which the visitor can explore the acoustic properties of the room according to his or her position.

In the workshop “Simple Mechanisms – Strange Behavior” (free and open to the public), participants will construct mobile objects, sound devices, and sound sculptures using basic materials.

Focus of the workshop:

- Exploring simple systems with complex kinetic and / or sonic behaviors
 

- Dealing with simple solutions
 

- Exploring methods of producing motion and vibration
 

- Building basic kinetic mechanisms 
 

- Introduction to new and smart materials



Duration: 2 - 3 Hours

Level of technical difficulties: easy


Required knowledge: none
