Swiss artist Zimoun creates stunning sound sculptures using simple, basic components, like DC motors and wire, amplified in effect by their numbers. One sculpture employs 30,000 plastic bags and 18 fans to create audio eerily like rain. Ever wonder what 400 vibrating motors sounds like? Check out this compilation video of a number of Zimoun’s works, annotated by the materials used.

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, on Saturday, January 22, swissnex San Francisco and Gray Area Foundation for the Arts team up to present Zimoun’s first solo exhibition in the Bay. And on January 19, Zimoun performs live with fellow sound artist Jim Hayes.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
