Avaritia – Silent Greed (2015)

Avaritia – Silent Greed

Sound sculpture using DC motors with recycled wine bottles.

There is a silent sound, like sitting in a natural scenario. In the silence, they are addicted to the comfort zone, and to turn around in the bottle endlessly. While they want to get closer to this attractive light even though they could be killed in a second.
We may desire to fall into a pit of infinite depth, and by doing so exhaust ourselves in an endless effort to satisfy the desire without ever having gratification.

Showed in Symposium: Beyond the Sound and Living Sound Exhibition in May 2015.


Assemblage version showed in Sept 2015.
