Rhythmic fields

Pablo Dávila

In this work, metronomes rest on top of mirrors, and are set in motion randomly, generating a soundscape that will eventually end every day, and then set again in a completely different pattern than the previous one based on chance timing and certain individual decisions. The work allows random events to function within the context of a controlled system. Thus, the infinite combinations of rhythmic patterns are set in motion. Each day, a new event, never the same twice. During the month-long exhibition of this work, the soundscape and also the reflected landscape will always be different to each viewer. An infinite cycle of patterns.
