SEEDSHAKER: WAITING FOR A
FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AND
THE RIGHT TIME
Seedshaker: Waiting for a Favorable Environment and the Right Time is a space- and sound-based installation. The sculpture is made up of transparent, spherical volumes, inside of which are placed the seeds of various crops. The seed spheres oscillate with the vibrations of built-in eccentric motors. Each sphere makes a sound of a unique timbre and volume: the reverberations of sunflower seeds, coffee, beans, and nuts each have their own inimitable character.
