Timon Botez – BIO
(b. 1973) is a Norwegian-Romanian artist educated in London. He is currently based in Oslo after many years working in Boston, London and New York.
People's relationship to man-made environments is a recurring theme in Botez’s work. Having spent most of his life in urban settings, he is influenced by the erratic behaviour and incidental interactions that take place around him. Through pseudo-scientific research, Botez explores the underlying behavioural patterns detected in his surroundings.
He's work lies in the intersection of technology and mechanics. He is inspired by the Dadaists’ abstraction of language and letter forms and find parallels to the Futurists noise-oriented approach to making sound.
For the past six years Botez has been working with sound and sculpture through conceptual compositions and orchestral installations. Like light, sound can be shaped and formed. Botez explores the space in front of a sound source by funneling and projecting the moving air as a way of sculpting audio waves.
