A Kinetic/light/sound installation

))))) repetition at my distance

“))))) repetition at my distance” is a kinetic/light/sound installation based on a subjective interpretation of sound traveling through space. It is based on a field of 16 rotating vertical blue light wire that oscillate in spreading patterns, which evokes the memory of wind passing through trees. The wires behave like a living entity of individuals that respond to different forces.

Through time they develop situations that evoke strong associations with natural phenomena and show organic choreographies and gestures shifting back and forth between the natural and the robotic. The flickering of light produces after-images on the retina that become an integral part of the experience, as they blend with the light produced by the installation.


Gabey Tjon a Tham(1988) [NL] is an installation artist working with a variety of media and art forms.

She  holds a bachelor of Fine Arts (Royal Academy of Art) and a Master in Artscience (Royal Conservatoire of the Hague). Her work consists of re-contextualized excerpts from reality that acquire their form within an architectural space. Midst this dialogue the perceiver is reverted to a process of reflection on its own thoughts, memories and dreams. Within this spaceless – timeless sanctuary the elements of the piece develop new relations to each other and their surroundings.
