The Kinematic Loom of Orbit in the Soviet Silo incorporates a Soviet Loom, two Personas in constrained position and the circular motion caused by those elements, composed in such a way
as to merge into an perpetuating apparatus.
The integral mechanism is caused by the dynamic interaction of various constants with limited room for maneuvre.
The input of the singular elements to the whole system is dependant upon each other’s position and determined by
the spatial and material elements that can be observed as equal actors within the whole setting.
As a result of signals bouncing back from the stone walls of the Silo, while primarily being modulated electronically
by one speaker in the centre of the space, sound materialises itself in the third dimension,
highly concentrated and enhanced in this reverberating container.
It is caused by two orbiting signal sources (electrical motors), interfering with each other and creating a superposition of waves,
intangibly affecting the cross-shaped electromagnetic antennas incorporated into the loom, that transform the signals into electronic sounds.
(‘The Kinematics of Machinery, 1876’)
“Thus we have the conversion of circular into reciprocating motion, the conversion of reciprocating into circular, and simple formulae express certain relations between the motion of two or more moving points.” “We notice at once that we have taken the mechanism as a whole.” (page 25)
“The motion of change of position may be determined by the direction and altitude of all the external forces which act on the body, the motion is then said to be ‘free’, but it is obviously impossible to arrange such a condition of things in a machine….. Motion under these circumstances is called ‘constrained’ motion.” (Page 28)
“There is only one condition in which we can imagine managers not needing subordinates, and masters not needing slaves. This condition would be that each instrument could do its own work, at the word of command or by intelligent anticipation, like the statues of Daedalus or the tripods made by Hephaestus, of which Homer relates that “Of their own motion they entered the conclave of Gods on Olympus”, as if a shuttle should weave of itself, and a plectrum should do its own harp playing.” (Aristotele, The Politics)
Galileo Galilei in 1600 in Le Meccaniche (On Mechanics), in which he showed the underlying mathematical similarity of the machines. He was the first to understand that simple machines do not create energy, only transform it.
