Design and style
June 23, 2022
Swedish audiovisual artist and woodworker Love Hultén is recognised for his extravagant and unconventional sound installations that tumble at the intersection of music, art, and design. Irrespective of whether an homage to Nintendo, Pacman, or Simone Giertz’s chattering mouths, the customized synthesizers are elaborate digital devices with wide audio capabilities and usually, a exceptional MIDI visualizer that responds in actual-time: play the keyboard of “NES-SY37,” for illustration, and a rendering evocative of a classic online video activity will appear on a little Lcd screen. In the scenario of “The Doodlestation,” a chord could prompt a cartoon-like figure to vomit an endless pastel rainbow.
Visually sophisticated and structurally advanced, Hultén’s designs acquire about ten months to finish. He tells Colossal that he is at the moment doing the job on a several commissions, which you can observe on YouTube and Instagram. (by means of Main77)
