Swiss artist Zimoun makes commonplace objects come alive—embedding cardboard boxes, trash bags, cotton balls, and more with a playful spirit (and motors) that's not unlike ghostly possession. In his latest exhibition, the creator has paired with architect Hannes Zweifel to make a sea of boxes dance, as if the materials were moshing at a hardcore show, or undulating like stormy waters.
Exhibiting at Mannheimer Kunstverein in Germany through September 21st, 20 prepared dc-motors, 81 cardboard boxes 70x70x70cm includes exactly as the title suggests. As the motors whirl, the boxes hobble and bump throughout the art space, evolving mundane objects into buoyant beings for a fleeting moment. Remember, though, if someone asks, you better open up that pit. See some photos of the installation below:
