Autonomous audio kinetic installation

The autonomous audio-kinetic installation consists of small minimalist robotic modules. The modules work autonomously on the basis of solar power, produce sounds and movements and interact with each other. Some modules combine both sound and movement and create fusions and a feedback of energies. Delicate changes in light or positioning of the modules influence their movements and sounds. The energy is reduced just to the level, at which something happens in the installation. This insufficient supply of energy however guarantees the modules’ unstable and altering behaviour and results in rhythmic and chaotically dense movement and sound patterns.
