Description

The tension between people, nations and cultures is tearing the world apart - slowly and subtly. Good and bad, war and peace, this duality view seems to be an oversimplified way of seeing the world. At the same time this creates the greatest tension. Tension gives form to the structure and it also has the potential to destroy it.
A framed and tensioned cloth is connected to 8 motor units. The analysis of several news-feeds on 'good' and 'bad' in nowadays world provides the input for those motors that pull and release the hooked membrane. A constant interplay between opposing forces produces movement, deformation and destruction of the material.
