Repetition At My Distance by Gabey Tjon a Tham

"The Monads" (excerpt)

Gabey Tjon a Tham (NL) transforms spaces into a sensory environment through kinetic machines, light and sound. She observes simple behaviours and patterns in nature from where she extracts and assembles fundamentals. Her work explores relationships between human kind, nature and technology where unpredictable processes, conflict and harmony are important subjects.
