Koru
2007
koru
Koru is the result of a research in the possibilities to combine electronics and pneumatics to create a sound sculpture.
Koru plays with rhythm and tone and freely transforms one into the other. The amount of light determines Koru's "mood" from slow breathing to active tone bursts.

Koru is Maori for the spiral shaped newborn fern leaves.
Using this shape Koru performs a plantlike dance given by the wind.

Koru contains microcontrollers and analog electronics to control the pneumatic valves and is constructed to be weather proof. The microcontrollers were programmed to be "intelligent" using the C programming language.

In September 2007 Koru was adapted for a special exhibition in the City Hall of the Hague during the Todays Art festival.
