Mechnical sound works from commonplace industrial objects

"The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the 'artificial' and the 'organic'. It's an artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviors in sound and motion. Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns."

V2_Institute for the Unstable Media

"In the turbulent year of 1981 the building at Vughterstraat 234 in Den Bosch was squatted by a group of artists and musicians, including a young Joke Brouwer and an almost as young Alex Adriaansens. There was no place for their sounds, art or ideas in the established venues, so they created one of their own at 'V234,' quickly shortened to 'V2.' September 3 and 4, 1981 the first events where organized. In 1982, these pragmatic anarchists decided to organize themselves into a foundation, and V2_ was officially born."

Rien a Cacher Rien a Craindre

"As the first artists in residence at la Gaîté lyrique in Paris, UVA created Rien a Cacher / Rien a Craindre, a series of responsive light and sound installations that together seduced and unsettled visitors in a unique way.

Exploring the unexamined assumption that digital technology is moving us towards utopia, UVA created a visitor experience simultaneously celebrating and critiquing the brave new world of the digital.

Over 14.000 people saw the installation over six days from 1–6 March 2011."

(United Visual Artists)

Spectrum Ecology: Interpreting Our Electromagnetic Radiation

"Human activities have become interpretable over the last 100 years within the electromagnetic spectrum. Our actions are decodable through our manipulation of the spectrum. [...] Our actions are decodable through our manipulation of the spectrum. With this comes the question of privacy rights. For instance, Microsoft ran a research project to see if they could detect an unlicensed user through the EMR of the computer screen. It was possible but they never implemented the technology."
