Liliane Lijn
Atom Body Was Light   1964

40.7 x 11.5 x 17.2 cm

letraset and paint on wood cone, turntable, motor; text Nazli Nour.

Collection: Leeds City Art Gallery.

In 1962 I first applied words in letraset onto the surface of cylinders and cones, then fixed them to motorised turntables, and made them spin at different speeds. I wanted the word to be seen in movement, dissolving into a pure vibration until it became the energy of sound.
