Zimoun constructs extraordinary, immersive sensory experiences using lo-fi technology, such as analog motors connected to various functional objects, including wooden sticks, cardboard boxes, and tin foil. He creates chaos from underlying systems of order, exploring elements of biology, engineering, music, sound, and installation art. These minimalist, mechanized sculptures confront the viewer/listener with a unique and compelling visual soundscape, one that simultaneously evokes the urban experience while eliciting almost physical memories of natural sounds (rain, sandstorms, or wind).
