Throughout his career, the artist Sigurður Guðjónsson has explored the boundaries of matter and the enigma that underlies every object around us. In "Perpetual MOTION", he brings attention to the continual flux of energy and an unperturbed level in nature, combining concepts of space, energy, and time into a multisensory sculpture. The artwork is staged as a gigantic screen split into two perpendicular axes in which a magnified image of metal dust vibrates in a gentle cadence that blends with a soundscape created with granular synthesis. Inspired by the space of the Arsenale, "Perpetual MOTION" is a celebration of camera and vision, poetic experimentation, and perceptual spaces.
