‘Rock1 Chime’, 2021
by Real Non-Real

Brushed steel, brushed aluminium, woven cord, pine & white oak


Synonymous with a bygone era where homes were adorned with a ramshackle mix of trinkets, ornaments, and DIY projects made from Better Home and Gardens, wind chimes evoke memories of 90’s suburbia. Activated by swinging the pendulum, Rock1 Chime unleashes a harsh, clangorous percussion… the discordant tune slowing and quietening as the pendulum swings to a gradual halt.
