Mia MIa, VIC, Australia
Anton Hasell is an artist living in Central Victoria exploring the use of both traditional and digital tools in the design of bells, interactive public-space installation, sculpture and printmaking. He is best known for the co-creation of the Federation Bells Carillon in Melbourne, and the design and casting of Longnow Foundation’s 10,000-year Clock bells.
His professional practice is a long-term research project into pathways that non-indigenous Australians might connect with Country, and tune into the resonant frequencies of the Australian landscape, through listening for its ambient sonorities. Hasell invents new forms, new sounds and participatory public space experiences in the conviction that a sustainable future requires us to connect with each other and share sublime connections to this ancient country.
3D Printed Difference-Tone Bell
This interactive installation pushes the boundaries of traditional bell making through 3D printing. This artwork invites audiences to contemplate the foundations of life beyond our human scale where all matter is composed of miniscule vibrating strings, made perceptible through resonance.
