Product description

Amplifier is my response to a brief from gallery HELMRINDERKNECHT who represents my work in Europe. I was invited to create a “modern mobile” for the recently opened group show entitled, THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT.


My piece is a one-off and the smallest mobile at the exhibition and is designed around amplifying the shadows of the mobile onto the surrounding interior. This is my first project that works with shadows and I couldn’t think of better effect than a slowly shifting mobile. The mobile itself is very light weight and delicate Balsa wood and it is suspended inside a very strong uplighting base made of 119 solid aluminium rings. The base protects the mobile from changes in air movement so the mobile needs the heat generated from the LED light within the base to move. Light and object are connected in a new way leaving a slow shifting pattern to be projected into the interior of an amazing old manor house in central Zurich.
