Ondine by Willy Chyr

The centrepiece of the song Ondine is an interaction between the eponymous child and her parent. We hear Ondine complain about almond butter, and though seemingly negative at first, the meaning of her words soon fade into the background. Eventually, we are left only with the melody of her speech, accompanied by a violin and a harp. One wonders if perhaps the phrase appeals to the child solely because of its musical qualities. The meaning of the words themselves is insignificant in light of their tonality. The notion is silly, but also fun, and in the end, perhaps that’s what being a child is all about.  In my installation, I revisit the balloon, an object ubiquitous throughout those childhood years, and through experimentation and play, transform it into something a little different. Via the visual projections, the sculpture is brought to life, pulsing with the rhythm of Ondine’s words. It is a little silly, and a little ridiculous, but all done in the spirit of fun.

WILLY CHYR is interested in generative art, storytelling, and the intersection between art and science. He holds a B.A. degree in Physics and Economics from the University of Chicago. While a student at the University, Willy joined Le Vorris & Vox Circus and performed as a juggler, unicyclist, and magician. It was during his time in the circus that Willy learned how to twist balloons.
