INTRODUCTION

“The origin of movement can be various, the result is infinite.”

Interpretation starts where movement occurs. Movement is the essence of life. The origin of movement can be various; the result is infinite. Shapes and emotions are formed by the movement of the underlying elements.

The work of Ivo Schoofs (1972), is a celebration of movement in its most natural occurrence; based on natural and physical phenomena, gravity, heat, light, friction and wonder. The work offers the spectator(s), through large-scale audio-visual installations, an experience to return to the base of the forces of natural movement.

Technology and science are made visible and sometimes, if possible, comprehensive. The black boxes are opened, the oil can be smelled and the gears are rotating. New sensory experiences and insights are formed upon a base of nature itself.
