Turning the normally invisible world into something we can see is an interesting challenge, but Daniel Palacios has done exactly that in his piece, Waves. Made of only two motors and a piece of string, Waves is a simple idea executed beautifully. As Daniel describes it:
Tangibly, the installation is made up of two turbines, supported by a tuning fork structure between which the waves are created. Nonetheless, it is the intangible, the process created there, which provides sense to the space it occupies and establishes a relationship with the public, who begin to discover that their movements have an influence on the space, sound, and alternate states of great agitation with others when they stop to see how the wave disappears in space like a whistle in the wind.
So it’s not only a pleasure to view, but it also repsonds to your physical presence. It’s always the simplest projects that seem to make the biggest impression. I really wish I could have seen this in person. To see more photos of the project click here.
