Natura Morta

The sound installation evokes the classical artistic genre of “still life” trying however to highlight, through sound, the vital energy still present in the fruits and also to connect in a critical relation the idea of sustainability and that of wastefulness.
More than one hundred lemons are connected with copper wires to create a room-sized electric resistance that triggers and modulates few oscillators producing a sound signal that is played in two spherical sound sculptures made of  acrylic stone. As time  passes, the fruits dry out, so the sound is  constantly modulated until the fruits completely  rot,  no longer  sending a signal.
