RECORDING - pure energy (vid + pics) / 28-04-2014 /
I designed a pocket-size contraption, made to record the energy of school kids. From age 6 to 10, every kid was given a record-tube, into which waited a piece of paper and a moving bit of graphite. As a necklace or in the deep of a pant's pocket, the device draws the days of the kid. Some are so excited, some quiet as a falling leaf... every drawing is unique and depicting the sole energy of the kid. 200+ drawings were gathered over a 6 months period. Thanks to everyone involved in the making. The whole project, making of and art will be presented at Dampkring gallery, amsterdam, this summer.
