The Canadian artist Robyn Moody often likes to use all kinds of electronic devices, common mechanical knowledge or sound recordings to create his works of art, complementing them with his particular gaze, a mixture of irony, beauty and mystery.
His work explores the complex relationships between technological advances, human beliefs, interpretations of the world, and humanity's relationship with science, religion, politics and nature.
In this 13th edition of MUTEK Barcelona, he presents his work entitled 'Wave Interference', a kinetic sculpture consisting of 88 fluorescent tubes mechanically animated as a cascade of undulating light. A 19th century pump organ provides a constantly changing drone, creating the soundtrack and setting the mood for experiencing the work.
The work is intended to simulate an electromagnetic spectrum made up of waves of electromagnetic radiation, from low frequency radio waves to high frequency gamma rays. A sliver within this spectrum is visible light, and only its frequency is different from the rest.
Wave Interference' combines a beautiful and elegant vision of a light wave with a gradually changing melancholic soundtrack.
