Studio Zimoun Repurposes an Old Toluene Tank for Physics and Sound Art Installation (Video)

Studio Zimoun, based in Bern, Switzerland, has created a sound installation titled "329" inside an unused toluene tank from 1951. Using 329 DC-motors and cotton balls, the project creates a vacuum of its own sounds within its internal space, using kinetic repetition and patterns. The installation is a collaborative work from the studio and architect Hannes Zweifel, who have worked together in 2011 for an installation featuring DC-motors and cardboard parts. The tank, located in Dottikon, remains unaltered on the outside, as it conceals a special interior space filled and defined by its own vibrations.
