Kinetic sound installation
Designed for the Saint Sauveur chapel in Caen, Caten is a site specific, kinetic sound installation comprised of 300 wires suspended in the chapel. Gravity pulls the wires into a parabolic shape that mimics the arched interior spaces of the church as a rotating arm attached to the wires causes them to rise and fall. The motor emits a series of notes inspired by hymn to St John the Baptist, as the new notes play, the lower frequency notes continue to resonate throughout the space— referencing the incantations and chants that once filled the space.
