The installation Pfütze consists of a pool of water on the ground that reacts to acoustic signals. To every loud noise in the room, the puddle reacts with seismological vibrations. In this way, this accumulation of water reflects both the surrounding space and the ambient sound.
From the Series Sequenzen:
Kessler‘s art shows transformative processes, often concretely
in and on the material itself. The Sequenzen body of
work is a series of experiments on the forces we are surrounded
by, attempting to capture how the world is shaped by
tiny yet uncannily effective forces such as sound waves, vibrations,
gravity, or time. Some of the works use a magnifying
glass to make these forces more visible, while others play with
the expectations we have of them.
Sequenzen includes works that are in a loop as well as objects
that are deliberately ephemeral; their creation already
anticipates their end.
Sequenzen is a body of work since 2019
