Lawrence Malstaf - Nemo Observatorium (2002)

"Styrofoam beads are blown around in a big transparent PVC cylinder by five strong fans. Visitors can sit in the armchair in the middle of the whirlpool or observe from the outside.

Spectacular at first sight, this installation turns out to mesmerize like a kind of meditation machine. One can follow the seemingly cyclic patterns, focus on the different layers of 3D pixels or listen to its waterfall sound. One could call it a training device, challenging the visitor to stay centered and find peace in a fast changing environment. After a while the space seems to expand and one’’s sense of time deludes.”

Lyrics

Wooly Willy catch a clam or two for me
I’ve been a-driftin and a-dallying on the sea
Call me a shipwrecked failure
that can’t afford but one luxury..

Trim the sails and play a paddled pitch melody
Cuttle with cuttlefish, muddle with muddy fish, soft and sweet
Oh god, my head it is a wailing
from the days that I’ve been sailing

Wooly Willy, travel so gallantly

Noisy jelly is a game where the player has to cook and shape his own musical material, based on coloured jelly.

With this noisy chemistry lab, the gamer will create his own jelly with water and a few grams of agar agar powder. After added different color, the mix is then pour in the molds. 10 min later, the jelly shape can then be placed on the game board,and by touching the shape, the gamer will activate different sounds.

Technically, the game board is a capacitive sensor, and the variations of the shape and their salt concentration, the distance and the strength of the finger contact are detected and transform into an audio signal.
This object aims to demonstrate that electronic can have a new aesthetic, and be envisaged as a malleable material, which has to be manipulated and experimented.
