Sound sculpture installations by Zimoun

Watch more with these video collections:

With motors, cardboard, wires, sticks, wood, crumpled paper, packing peanuts, fans, and other materials, Bern, Switzerland-based artist Zimoun creates large-scale sound sculpture installations that vibrate and hum. This 2017 video compilation is a selection of works from 2005-2017.

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.
