PE Lang is known for creating minimal kinetic artworks that control and put physical forces in action with a captivating elegance. The piece moving objects | n ° 1703 1750, is based on sound. Once the tension is released, the sound of crumpled paper lingers for up to a minute. The rings in moving objects | n° 1415 1702 are not meant to generate any particular sound, but to create associations of ideas instead. Finally, positioning systems VI, is a machine that adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the hydrophobic surface.
