Residual chamber

Aquarium, base, motor, sound device, aspirin, 30 x 30 x 120 cm, 2018

Residual Chamber is a sound sculpture offering a possible interpretation of the sounds of the universe. The song of the cosmos becomes perceptible thanks to this strange instrument of fictional science whose harmonics are generated by micro bubbles. Residual Chamber suggests a hypercube by a four-dimensional geometric structure composed of two aquariums interconnected by metal ridges. A small mechanical machinery driven by a computer system drops pieces of aspirin at irregular intervals above an aquarium. Immersed in this water, a hydrophone captures the sounds of the breaking of the fine bubbles released by the tablets. This device proposes an evocation of the cosmos, the installation like a window on an infinity, the sounds like figures of our immersion.
