ABOUT METAMORPHOSES PROJECT
I was bewitched by whales voices record, that’s how the assemble SOUNDS OF ANIMALS appeared, made from ceramic. Such sounds blue and grey whales produce sailing into different corners of our planet; anxious sounds to each other of call from mother to its child.
The color is defined by situation what whale faces. Those coded signals I performed through sculptural plastic using audio pieces, recorded by scientists, as base element. These sounds may be called songs, truly indeed. While listening to some of them the anxious feeling is blossoming. You’re bothered with mother Earth creation, human beings appearance, our talents and all these thing took for granted, our restlessness, the nature around. It’s hard even to imagine how communicative devices vary.
By this work I’d like to pay attention to grey and blue whales extinction. Unfortunately, nowadays whaling industry is an acute issue such as water pollution.
The series is performed with ceramic plies, covered with different glazes, and engobe.
