Swiss artist Zimoun creates incredible sound installations that combine everyday functional items such as cardboard boxes, metal sheets and cork balls with mechanical elements like dc motors and wires. His sound installations are described as platforms of sound that ‘explore mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems.’

Zimoun’s sound structures are minimalist but captivating in the way they work. As described in his website, his works ‘articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life.’

Zimoun has shown his work in solo and group shows in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and Asia. His work is currently on exhibit at the Olympus Photography Playground in Berlin.

Watch the video of Zimoun’s installation below.
