M 24 is the installation constructed from 24 sculptures that combine the properties of aesthetics and physics into an interactive experience.
The swirling of water in the sphere of sculpture, triggered by the action of the audience, activates the movement of
fluorescent particles exposed to UV light creating clumps like smaller galaxies.
24 kinetic sculptures shaped translucent spheres set in parallel relationship with one another represent an enlarged context of transience time one day in a person’s life.
Each sphere is a unique universe containing its own forms,
relationships, and cycles in the game of creation and destruction. There are 20 smaller, handheld and 4 bigger sphere sculptures.
The scientific background of this work is based on understandings of contemporary ideas of time and space like the theory of parallel universes and string theory.
"By questioning the multiverse ideas of string theory, I placed the viewer at the center of the time-space continuum as the main link between worlds. It is he who initiated the change that connects the multiple universes into the game of creation and destruction ”.
- Filip Borelli
The interactivity of the M Series emphasizes the importance of human impact on the environment by placing action as the main cause of motion in space. Looking at the context of everyday life, the consequence of human actions can be manifested through the representation of microplastics in the waters of the world.
It is the letter M that symbolizes the idea of the multiverse as a possible explanation of temporal-spatial relationships in which the observer creates reality by making actions. The installation is movable and can easily be transported and assembled. Materials that we use are reusable and available.
Materials: acrylic spheres, water, fluorescent material in color, metal construction, inductive motors, Arduino, LED ultraviolet lights 4x120 watts, 20x3 watts, rechargeable batteries.
