Pe Lang : a Leap Forward

The show at Denise René Marais is well in line with the precedent shows of this kinetic artist. But he escalates new levels of technicity, notably with Positioning_systems_n_6 (includes video), "400 water drops arranged on hydrophobic surface'.
The machine adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the omniphopic Material. The electronically controlled pipette wanders through a esquare grid of 20 x 20 drops to form a micro-matrix and returns to the beginning. After approximately 300 minutes, and when the water drops have evaporated, the same process starts again."
