Ariel Avraham creates kinetic works that focus on movement, change and visual spectacle. His Op and Kinetic works are made out of interference patterns. Each work uses a number of motors and electronic mechanisms to control the different moving aspects of an overlaying grid. As a result, the flat overlaid patterns produce a visual depth of performative, psychedelic and dazzling patterns, a poetry in motion.
The electronic mechanism works like a clock, with each piece moving at specific intervals of time. The works can also be set to arrange themselves into a complete image at a prearranged time. These systematic changes of the orientation of the overlays, as well as the exploration of motion parallax, give a warped sense of time and vision to create the illusion. Ariel Avraham is a Kinetica Museum Oxygen artists member.
