CYSP-1-56.JPG

Nicolas Schoffer

The artwork is a cybernetics and space dynamics construction. Its movement is completely autonomous. It has an electronic brain, developed by SA Philips. The 16 polychrome composing plates, driven by small motors,  rotate around an eccentric axis. The photocells and microphone are integrated in the sculpture, giving it a life and an organic sensibility: the  "Abstract Robot."  The "CYSP I" represents the synthesis of sculpture, painting, choreography, music and cinema. The first cybernetic sculpture of art's history.
