Zimoun at Dutch Design Week 2014

Posted on: September 26, 2014

Swiss sound sculptures artist Zimoun will be present at the upcoming 2014 edition of the Dutch Design Week (DDW). The DDW is a yearly event dedicated to what was once called “industrial  design“, but now extends simply to “design“. It is held from October, 18 to 26 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are characterized by these quotes:

«Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects.» bitforms nyc

«The sound sculptures and installations of Zimoun are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic». Zimoun creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.» Tim Beck

Exhibitions and events are spread all over the city of Eindhoven during the DDW. The STRP Scene #2 installation of Zimoun can  be viewed at the Klokgebouw on the Strijp-S facility.
