A CLOSER LOOK AT “IMPACT KINETICS”, AN INSTALLATION FOR "SUSTAINABILITY AND OTHER STORIES"
“In an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a net force.” – Isaac Newton.
Kim Sørensen is an Australian artist known for his experimental sculptures and installations. Pairing participation with the enhancement of sound, aesthetics and form, Sørensen seduces the viewer into a world highlighting the poetic meaning in everyday life. Inspired by “Sustainability and other stories” analysis of power dynamics, Sørensen created mechanisms revolving around the idea of movement through kinetic energy. A single decision from giant companies can have an impact worldwide. Based on the Butterfly Effect theory, the installations stress how one simple action can result in a wave of repercussions. Each of us needs to reflect on our role and responsibility towards a viable future.
Winner of the German National Award - Ecodesign Young Talent 2016, "Sustainability and other stories" is currently touring the Baltic Sea Region with the Ecodesign Roadshow by International Design Center Berlin (IDZ), in partnership with the German Federal Environment Agency.
