10 inch transparent vinyl in a booklet (30 pages or so)/cover/sculpture of seemingly pure bronze. The booklet’s (2) feature either photo’s of the work or texts concerning the work.  Sound artist Gert-Jan Prins (1961) deals with the frequencies of our electronic age. Between feedback and composition, between the free will of human improvisation and the determinism of electronic laws (and digital algorithms), Prins operates as a sculptor and an experimenting scientist.

Cavity: the Capacitive version is a new work in his study to bring forth the dynamics of this interplay within an architectural (atmo)sphere. The visitors, man, are brought about into this sphere as an electromagnetic wave. Do our bodies and minds indeed integrate into the mechanical and (digital) electro-technical order of our cultivation?

If indeed so, what would this mean to our sociability? Will we indeed experience a growing presence of the Asperger syndrome, as registered in areas as Silicon Valley and the Eindhoven Brainport region? Will this become a new standard for a post-mechanical, post-digital era? How can we discern this new order and precede this domain so as to anticipate it?

The technical meaning of a cavity is a small device with input and output. Within its hollow body, electromagnetic waves reflect, resonate, are clarified or amplified. Tuning is provided by a mounted capacitor
