Solid Frequencies

Sculpture for the international exhibition The Art of Caviar
La Prairie
Art Basel, Paris, New York, HongKong, Shangai, Zurich
Pictures courtesy B. Boccas, P. Coudamy
Materials : glass, audio system, sensor, steel, resin

Taking its cue from the Kundt Tube, a scientific device that displays sound waves in an air-filled, transparent tube, Coudamy’s piece is mysterious at first glance. A massive black form is pierced by a glass tube filled with small marbles, inspired by the beads of La Prairie’s Skin Caviar. When the piece is touched, the marbles move, generating three-dimensional shapes that flow back and forth through the tube, following the hand’s movement and spilling over each over like a mass of caviar beads.
