[Visual Sound Inspiration]
In my attempt to find inspiration I had originally stumbled upon the Swiss artist Zimoun. His work is brilliant; my favorite:
121 prepared dc-motors, cardboard elements 8x8cm
From the source:
DC-motors, cardboard elements, power supply, wooden body. Dimensions: 90cm x90cm x30cm / 35.4" x 35.4" x 11.8".
Installation view: Art Basel | Galerie Denise René Paris. Assisted by Florian Bürki and Vanessa Gageos.
Once again, I recommend going to the source to watch the video on this. I also highly recommend browsing around the website to view some of his other work.
