Observatory: carbon nanotubes


sound-kinetic diorama
exterior: acrylic object in crystalloid like form; interior: relief , turntable, light, sound
sound: Scanner – Robin Rimbaud
dim: 115 x 72 x 70 cm

The kinetic diorama submerged within and enhanced by the audio environment observed through an opening in the surface of a crystal-shaped object imitates the structural makeup of carbon nanotubes visible through a microscope. A hub of tubes creates a nano-topographic simulation, whose technical attributes reveal another specific characteristic uncovered within the domain of light technology: carbon nanotubes, which represent a compelling potential, since they allow, indeed facilitate the transformation of electrical energy into light with virtually no heat loss.
