Спутник (Sputnik), 2020

Polyurethane, steel, electric motor and audio

Music by Nick Samuels ‘Carry On

Sputnik in Russian has multiple meanings: companion, fellow traveller, attendant, though its meaning has become synonymous with satellites since the launch of Sputnik 1. 

This project came about from my interest in creating a isochronous transmission and reception of sonar messages to other cosmic territories. This sculpture explores interactions between machines and kinetic responses to music with the parabolic surface of the red receiving dish deflecting and distorting the sound from the speaker.
