Willem van Weeghel : “Dynamic Structure 1586” (Kinetic Art)

Dimensions 698 x 246 cm

“Movement is the central means of expression in my work. The changing structures that appear move in the transitional area between chaos and order, between variability and uniformity, between volatility and consistency. As a reconciliation of opposites.

My kinetic objects are characterised by a serial use of elements of which the form is generally of less importance than the movement that they make. Identical elements with identical movement options together form constantly changing structures. Like dancers executing a complex choreography. The forms that I use only function as the instruments to make the movement visible and, therefore, these are as simple as possible. The coordinated movement creates complexity.

The movements of the objects are usually controlled by an integrated computer system, which is not visible for the spectator. I make use of advanced technology, but this is not visible and it is only instrumental. Instrumental in an attempt to enable the constant movement in which structures appear and then disappear again in order to visualise the passage of time.” Willem van Weeghel
