Ebb & Flow is a sound installation by Shammaes that brings together their respective interests in sound, design and architecture. The installation itself collides classic dualities, but by placing them in direct confrontation it ends up problematizing them.

mechanics and dynamics.
automata and avalanches.
harmonic and chaotic.

As time changes so do sounds and their convolution. The mechanical oscillation’s contact with soil is done at the expense of harmonicity and constancy. In some sense then, this form of oscillation resembles more and more to some other, more primordial ones; namely, that of a seashore’s ebb and flow.
