Conversation on the Origin of Time

00:00 / 00:36

 

Conversation on the Origin of Time is a sculpture/instrument able to transform the sedimentary strata of a rock into rhythm. A plate of stone used in architecture here becomes the groove for a turntable needle. When the needle meets the edges of the diverse layers of rock it produces a deep and scratchy sound that, as it alternatives with silence, give us the rhythm of geological history.

The work has been inspired from the book ‘How nature works’ by Danish physician Per Bak, where he analyze the behaviours  of human and natural phenomenas finding common affinities.
