Pe Lang and Zimoun have created a range of sound objects, also referred to as the Untitled Sound Objects. These sound objects are mainly triggered by simple vibration motors, however the artists try to create very organic experiences. These art installations may remind us of the work of Floris Kaayk with his Order Electrus, in which computer generated bugs come alive, however in these sound experiments it's real components that start to behave rather nature like. Both in the sound they produce and the way things move and behave.

What is your view on the coronavirus?
Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.Comment
