A kinetic installation to investigate the way our presence affects our surrounding space
The installation investigates the way we read and understand physical phenomena of embodiment in interaction of space and matter. The audience enters an immersive force field balancing between equilibrium and singularity conditions. 
LOADS is activated by the spectators presence in it’s space, the textile is deformed by gravitational forces of the moving spherical weight. Surrounding dynamic light arrays synchronized with the system are emphasizing materiality of textile and deformation through steep angle exposure and resulting soft shadows. A motion tracking system monitors the intervention space and communicates information about observers to a simulation which drives the behaviour of the display.
Loads was developed and realized in close cooperation with Patrick Bedarf at FELD and first shown during the “Sensient Geometries” exhibition at SPEKTRUM Berlin
