Austere elegance: "Sculpting Sound" by Zimoun

Currently on show at The Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, USA. is a solo exhibition of sound sculptures and installations by sound sculptor Zimoun, Curated by Matthew McLendon.

By using nothing more than 71cm x 71cm x 71cm  plain cardboard boxes, numerous prepared dc-motors and an unspecified amount of 2mm flat steel wire, Zimoun has constructed a number of architecturally-minded walls, planes and floor mounted sound sculptures throughout his exhibition.

The acoustic hum in the exhibition space resonates with a cacophony of beating, throbbing, whirling and whirring sounds. Zimoun's creations generate complex behaviors of sound and motion reverberating their own ordered presence, conveying an emotive poetry of mechanical rhtythm, or in his words "«Sculpting Sound»".
