in Balance comprises a collection of twenty-one separate arrangements of wooden blocks, each arrangement is made up of six identically sized pieces of redwood. These 3D geometric forms have then been mirrored and rotated, to create a tessellated pattern, visually representing a state that’s in balance between simplicity and complexity. This balanced state of harmony is found in many systems observed in the natural world.
in Balance has an internal smart control system, connected to state-of-the-art LEDs that are concealed within the piece. This enables interaction with the sculpture via an app and allows the selection of colours, programming of sequences and an almost infinite variety of lighting effects. The piece can be integrated into any smart home system and can also access the microphone in any smartphone or handheld device, transforming the sound that is sensed into a synchronised audio-visual display.
