Sustain / Ability

Dimitra Tsachrelia, Eirini Tsachrelia and Nicholas Karytinos, 2016 (installation coming).


Resonating frequencies may be visualized as perpetuating, three-dimensional curves. The musical strategy of ‘sustaining’, offers one idea, which would allow, in space and time, for the generation of a kind of ecological spring or spatio-temporal intensifier, capable of generating rhythmic waves, in light if not in sound.

— John Rajchman

Description

Springs, through compression and expansion, store, absorb or release energy; they sustain an ever-changing form, revertible to their original condition. Metal, originally reluctant to change, gains elasticity when shaped into a helical spring. The dialectic of the two words, Sustain and Ability, becomes manifest in three-dimensional space.
