Title: roto gravur nos 14,16 & 18

Materials: Printed rotating discs, motors, sensor


Spinning machines, gears, toothed wheels, transmission, Duchamp's rotoreliefs, bobbins, thread, weaving, fabric, patterns and moiré.

roto gravur is from a wall-based installation of 20 printed, transparent double discs, potentially rotating when people are passing by. Within the series of discs the patterns grow more and more complex. The last ones are geometrically organised like zillij-patterns. When the discs rotate, the closely spaced lines start to create different moirés due to the change of angles.
