Mirjana Vodopija (HR)
An object formed according to a personal nostalgia and everyday desire for an open space. It contains a duality between enclosed space, source of vibrations and simulated open space in which the vibrations generate a kinetic landscape, electrical motors are placed in the interior to make elastic filaments vibrate with various frequencies. The tensions of the filaments produce the diversity of forms.
The artwork was technically worked out and produced with associate professionals Leonardo Krleža and Nenad Mijić.
