Mariska de Groot will be presenting Nibiru at Blooming Festival
Nibiru is an audiovisual performance instrument constructed from simple, yet unstable handmade pendulum oscillators. The pendulums are activated by rhythmical body movements which then scratch complex curvilinear patterns into black chalk treated glass. Noises of instability and resistance in the apparatus are amplified and sound patterns are created by light sensitive speakers that scan the changing projected geometric line image.
Rhythmical movement, light and sound all come together naturally as an analogy for cosmological trajectories, while the drawing becomes a plotted chronicle of Nibiru’s dance.
