Micro.Perpendiculars consists of roughly 13 balanced capsules. The capsules are set in motion through environmental influences such as the flow of air, their own inherent 'systemic static' or through the physical proximity of approaching visitors. External influences are balanced out through slow pendular motions and by weight shifts controlled by electronic appliances that are built into the capsules. The capsules are able to communicate with one another and in so doing, coordinate their movements. The resulting complex motion sequences are connected to adaptation and communication processes that place the art objects in a direct reference system with the observing subjects and their presence and architectural space.
