undulations

source: burnaway

Like Bembe, John Douglas Powers’ multi-media machines are in large part inspired by music. Undulations is viewer activated with a switch. When it is turned on, the planks slowly ripple while scraping across a piece of wood. The combination of kinetic visual beauty and auditory irritation animates the gallery space. Undulations’ form and sound compliment the motorized bow of the nearby Violinist, thereby creating an unusual object-based performance within the gallery space.
