MEADOW

 

Meadow is an upside down landscape, the kinetic sculpture consists of mechanical flowers that open and close in a poetic choreography. The installation reminds the viewer of the impermanence of constantly changing seasons and sensational character of natural growth processes.

Most man-made objects have a static form, while everything natural in this world including people, are subject to constant metamorphosis and adaptation to their surroundings. Meadow is the result of the question how an inanimate object can mimic those changes that express character and emotions.

As an upside down landscape the kinetic sculpture reacts to the visitors as if they where the sun to a blooming flower. All flowers together create the experience of a botanical creature that naturally engages the viewer. Underneath Meadow integrated sensors translate the presens of the visitors into different 'moods'.  The robotic flowers blossom by mixing the light colour and the colour of the fabric that in itself has a colour gradient. 

Meadow, by Studio Drift | Meadow is developed as a site specific commissioned by Chodov Centre in Prague
