Large Pendulum Wave / 2014



Ivo Schoofs

/NL/ Ivo Schoofs is a Dutch artist, recognized for creating large-scale kinetic light installations. He is fascinated by weird inventions, optical illusions and movement. His large-scale installations are often related to scientific artefacts and strong visual phenomenons.

A kinetic light art experiment weighing over nine tonnes is described by the author as “The poetry of math and the beauty of physics. Taken from the lab and exposed to the elements underneath the stars. Will it still dance and dream? Or disappear into chaos?” The Large Pendulum Wave is based on physical laws. There are no tricks (such as additional motors) involved.
