Relaxing Chaos
Leaves rustling in the wind,
clouds floating across the sky,
waves rolling up and down.
Evolution developed the human mind and eye to notice constant change in nature.
The constant movement- unpredictable in its details and ‘chaotic’ in the most beautiful sense- is apparently good for the soul.
Why else would a fireplace fire or an aquarium have such a relaxing effect? My kinetic sculptures also follow the principle of chaotic movement.
I try to inspire and make the world a little bit more beautiful with moving sculptures.

I try to surprise with liveliness and yet also bring peace and meditation to our hectic everyday life.

And I try to highlight sustainability and energy transition in a surprising way. Normally when it comes to these topics, numbers and percentages are mentioned,

% CO2, ... cm sea level, etc.

But these numbers don't touch us, they don't move us……..

The inspiration does.



I make kinetic sculptures that move on solar energy.

They have integrated solar panels and motors so that they move freely when it is light.

They make unpredictable movements so that you can watch it for a long time without getting bored. You can dream away with it.

The sculptures become a kind of organism that happily dance when the sun shines. They sleep at night and when the sun comes up they slowly come to life.

You feel the rhythm of the day and of the seasons.



Imagine that you are rushing to your appointment in a modern sustainable building. You step inside, high ceiling, lots of windows, lots of daylight. You feel a bit lost in the large space. You often have to report to the reception desk and wait a while.



I make Solar Mobiles for these spaces. They create a cheerful, happy and lively atmosphere. You no longer feel so lost in the large space. And if you have to wait, it is very nice to be calm and dream away.

Relaxing Chaos
Leaves rustling in the wind,
clouds floating across the sky,
waves rolling up and down.
Evolution developed the human mind and eye to notice constant change in nature.
The constant movement- unpredictable in its details and ‘chaotic’ in the most beautiful sense- is apparently good for the soul.
Why else would a fireplace fire or an aquarium have such a relaxing effect? My kinetic sculptures also follow the principle of chaotic movement.

Kinetic sculptures can tell with rhythm and melody, a dynamic story; Motion is becoming the extra dimension. My sculptures are brought in motion by wind, water or solar energy or by interacting with human beings. The sculpture is never the same. It is constant changing and it is always in a moment of change. I always aim for a non-predictical motion. Like watching the clouds moving in the sky, or like a campfire you can dream by the motion of the sculptures.

Solar Mobiles are Mobiles that move by itself on solar energy. It’s a kind of moving chandelier. At night it sleeps. In the morning when the sun rises it comes alive. During the day it’s alive, it’s swinging, alive and kicking and when the sun sets it’s getting quit and goes to sleep.

It’s an instrument that is bin played by the sun.

When it moves it’s a kind of organism You can feel the rhythm of the day and the rhythm of the seasons. I always aim for non-predictable movements. You can watch it, it’s never boring.

A moving sculpture influences the atmosphere in a room in a positive way.

Bert Schoeren studied Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft and started after graduation to work as an exhibit designer at the Nemo, Science en Technology Centre in Amsterdam. An interactive museum/theme park where visitors can play interactively with exhibits. The second floor, his area, had the theme Energy. He designed amongst others wind, solar and water exhibits. The first step towards kinetic sculptures. He created objects in public space, especially street furniture and cardboard and wooden furniture. Now he is into kinetic Art.

You pass on energy.
Solar Mobile, EcoArt; During the night it sleeps. When the sun rises it comes alive. During the day it’s dynamic and when the sun stets it goes to sleep. You pass on energy. For the future generation, literally as Alliander an energy network company, as inspiration and to future generations. 135 of these mini-solar sculptures generate electricity themselves and convert it into motion. They float unpredictably in the air in the new Alliander building. This kinetic mobile is 13 meters high and has a diameter of 9 meters. In the morning it slowly comes to life, during the day it is lively and when the sun sets it slowly comes to rest. It is like a musical instrument that is played by the sun.
