Concept

Oscillating Oscillators consists of a pair of sound sculptures, which contain an LED swung by a motor over a clear display containing a light-sensitive sound circuit. As the artificial as well as ambient light shifts throughout the course of an exhibition, the sound evolves. Due to the proximity of each sculpture to one another, a feedback loop occurs wherein the light of one sculpture affects the sonic output of the other further illustrating the cybernetic aspect of the work.
