amsterdam-based artist ronald van der meijs has designed an architectural and sculptural installation. ‘sound architecture IV’ is made from
5,500 repurposed bicycle bells positioned on steel pins. as the wind picks up, the bells gently ring against one another, l
ending a visual and auditory component to invisible breeze. the exhibition is on show from may 2012 to october 2012 at the
art garden of the annigahof gallery in zwolle, the netherlands.


the composition consists of 5500 chromium bicycle bells


nature dictates the form of the work


the highest point of the steel pins is 1 meter
