un rondo was an installation that was built at Long Island University in March of 2016. Built of suspended paper walls, these temporary structures were a backdrop for the traces of ink left by the actions of Six synchronized pumps. Turning on every hour, the pumps released a single drop of ink and with each impact the falling ink would break into tiny droplets, patterning the paper walls with its spray. Running continuously for the duration of the exhibit these single events did not leave signs of discernable change but instead each action when combined together created a timeline that told the story of continuous automated events.
One additional pump activated a timepiece; a brass bell, which was struck each time water was released to activate a striker. Timed to operate once every minute this timepiece operated from the moment of the opening of the show till the exhibition closed. Afterwards the installation was dismantled and the room again was emptied and silent.
