Doric Columns, Kinetic Object – Objects of Common Interest (United States)

Doric Columns, Kinetic Object is a pair of fabric-clad fluted columns that draw visual cues from industrial circular knitting machines. While initially static, the columns come to life when approached: each broken into a series of vertically stacked textile sections, which spin independently at varying speeds and in different directions. Every time the viewer draws near, a new randomly generated visual effect is created as the textiles whirl and reshape through the air. The columns are comprised of Kvadrat Febrik’s Plecto, Gentle 2 and Drop textiles, assembled in a variety of colours. Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis are Objects of Common Interest, a studio based between New York and Athens.
