Object is an interactive, kinetic, sound sculpture.
It is a digital/analog hybrid system, able to react to the environment and to the changes that take place within itself. The sculpture present itself as a aluminum plate, it is implemented thanks to an intelligent mechanical system, capable to capture and create sound through aluminum's vibrations.
The plate generate tension, an action at distance, between itself and any kind of body getting close to it, the metal tends to get distance from anything approaching, bending itself. This bending influences the relations between the various components of the system, generating dynamic and unpredictable sound that increase his volume proportionally to plate's bending, reacting to the proximity of other bodies.
