Forces of Iron I, 2016
Iron, glass, ceramic isolators, VHS-tapes, electric cable
The iron frame holds glowing iron wire heated up by electric current, heating the air. Electricity is converted into thermal energy and then to kinetic air movement energy.
The master´s project includes three works which are real-time processes that reveal different properties of iron. These properties include thermal and electric conductivity, vibration (sound) and corrosion.
Forces of Iron II: sound sculpture, a vibrating system of rods with bells connected to the top. Rods and bells vibrate at slightly different frequencies, forming a field of sound.
Forces of Iron III: 5 rusting sheets. Water drips to the front side, flowing along the surface. Iron reacts with oxygen in the air and corrodes. The rear side of the sheet hides a heater, that raises temperature and accelerates the corrosion process.
