Attractions – Similarities


four kinetic objects with magnets and metal particles
dim: diameter 12 cm

Kinetic objects take part in the multimedia project Attractions – Similarities that focuses on magnetism as a physical phenomenon, by visualizing it in various ways, using kinetic objects, videos, drawings, and photographs of visually magnified particle configurations. The tracking of this invisible natural activity – sound and visual recordings of the movement of magnetic particles – speak metaphorically of the strange inner order of vaguely random or chaotic (natural and cerebral) phenomena, and at the same time call into question our cognitive ability to distinguish between living and non-living, between natural and unnatural.
