“Sound“, 2018

кkinetic sound sculpture,
10х12х3,5 cm, canvas, microelectronic components

The object examines the properties of a canvas stretched over a frame. A small canvas is primed and stretched in such a way that when it is raised and lowered from behind, the canvas springs back and makes a characteristic sound. The mechanism (solenoid) is installed on the back of the canvas to raise and lower the canvas every 7 seconds. A canvas – a primary attribute of painting – becomes a source of sound.
