Gravity Vortex at DiskoBabel – Berlin

Gravity Vortex (2021)

Picked up at the closing of a veterinary business, this heavy hydraulic surgeon table was originally used and modulated to operate different types of species. 

Removing the broken hydraulic system and reappropriating its mechanism has allowed us to create an infinite directional rotation. The structure has been transformed as a platform for electronic components, monitors and sensors.

Gravity Vortex was created to give control over the physical rotation and spinning of the structure which in turns modifies the visual. 

The representation of a 3 dimensional transparent box contrasts with the flat screens. This depth illusion invites people to play with the structure to feel the connection between virtual, physical and mechanical.
