Kinetic sculpture / installation with monitor mounts, metal pipe, 3d prints, vacuum bag, air pump, metal hose, sand, printed aluminum plate, metal rods
C7950ZN is a kinetic sculpture in a space-filling installation. The installation shows a scene of an excavation, uncovering a creature from the surrounding sand, an observation of the found objects, a measurement of individual fragments and the site itself on the aluminum plate. An insect-like skeleton consisting of monitor mounts and 3D printed parts extends over two meters hanging from the ceiling. In a steady cycle, the lungs of the otherwise lifeless object fill with air and collapse again and again shortly after. The installations title is based on the naming of asteroids observed by people on Earth, with each letter and number defining a specification of the flying object, as well as the time of observation.
