Vibrating Landscape is an object formed according to a personal nostalgia and everyday desire for open space. The uniqueness of absolute space in a physical sense is equivalent to the uniqueness of the free and unlimited mind as against the isolation of smaller spaces, interiors as shelters of the mind. Personal space is enclosed for the sake of the creation of a territory of safety and comfort, personal sound boxes of desirable echoes in which consciousness is limited to the isolated part. The object contains a duality between enclosed space, source of vibrations and simulated open space in which the vibration generates a kinetic and sound landscape.
In the reticular housing of the interior are placed electrical motors that vibrate elastic filaments with varying frequencies. The filaments visually lose their linearity and are turned into spindleshaped forms of different sizes and transparencies, in line with the vibration frequency, overlap and create a hum of low frequencies (30-50 Hz).
