Nemore

2010

Nemore is a kinetic garden consisting of 36 flexible carbon poles. Each pole behaves as individual and reacts to its neighbours – and to the visitor. As well each emits a distinct sound, from which a chord arises, fluctuating in resonance with the movement of the poles. This multitude of singular actors generates a complex system, which leads the visitor to perceive Nemore as one organism rather than as a gathering of separate entities. It also triggers our tendency to project emotion onto inanimate objects – in this case, the „community“ of poles appears anxious, happy, curious, etc., depending on the human-like movements they enact.
