Soft Power: Brushes
With the help of motors, the objects rotate in different rhythms. The friction of the various special cleaning materials on the wall creates different noises and leaves circular traces of dirt.
The sound, or rather the movement, of all the objects is programmed in interaction and appears partly random, partly musical or in conversation with each other.
It is part of a research about the paradoxical phenomenon that slick mass-produced everyday objects are becoming increasingly personalised and part of one’s identity. The specification of an everyday object goes hand in hand with its aestheticisation and personification and anthropomorphic abilities.
