PROJECT Tessel
ARTISTS Lab(au) and David Letellier
PRODUCERS MediaRuimte Gallery (Brussels) and Roger Tator Gallery (Lyon)
DURATION 17th December 2010 – 29th June 2011

David Letellier, a french architect and electronic musician has collaborated with Lab(au) to produce this kinetic sound installation. The suspended topography of 40 irregular triangles are arranged in a ‘pinwheel’ tiling pattern, based on the work of mathematicians Charles Radin and John Conway.  The triangular panels are fitted with motors and audio transmitters, creating a sound scape in constant motion. The work draws on a long history of theory exploring the relationships between geometry, movement and chaos.

Tessel will continue to move around galleries and festivals in France and Germany until the end of June 2011.
