At the art fair Art Salon Zurich 2023, the gallery Multipleart (Zurich) showed a kinetic artwork titled Swarm No 5. The piece was created in a collaboration of the two artists Marianthi Papalexandri Alexandri and Pe Lang.
Official description: Swarm No5 is a sound, kinetic sculpture based on the idea of repurposing traditional musical instruments in such a manner that their behavior would generate irregular and unpredictable behaviors, pitch timbre, and rhythms. At different times, system parts form clusters or become released, depending on the initial conditions of the system and the individual variations of the parts’ behavior. In this way, small changes in parts’ behavior can lead to large system effects at a later stage.
