Swiss sound and visual artist Zimoun creates minimalist kinetic structures that vary from large-scale architectural installations to playful assemblages of ordinary objects. Using machines such as tiny DC motors and modest mass-produced materials, Zimoun’s works explore the interplay between symmetry and chaos to create sounds that appear to emanate from the natural world. For 30,000 plastic bags, 16 ventilators (2010) Zimoun aimed 16 industrial fans at a layered mass of crinkled, wall-mounted plastic bags, resulting in a literal wall of sound.
