rocks, tin cans, DC motors, wire.

Elements song (2020) uses tin cans as resonating chambers, each with its own timbre or voice. Small motors mounted on rocks drag the tin cans to choreograph peculiar movements and sound. These aggregate rocks positioned across the floor become the locus around which the tin cans orbit. Each tin vessel takes part in a cumulative mark-making, while the friction against the floor’s surface grinds down this refined element back to particle states.
