Echea Aeolica

This sound sculpture is a big resonating amphora designed to play the sound of the wind that blows from the shore in Syracuse, Sicily, where it’s permanently installed. The shape of the sculpture derives from ancient “echea” amphoras; the clean modernist shape gives solemnity and soft coziness to the work inviting the audience to put their ear close to the sculpture to listen to the resonance of the wind and the sounds of the surrounding ambience.
