Recuperation in the Space of State

Autumn, 2019

Technologically, titanium shavings are industrial waste. This is not the final, but one of the possible, intermediate forms of material existence. In this cyclicity, titanium is accompanied by numerous manipulations associated with processing on various equipment and. But what information about himself, in addition to the visible shell, can he give in any of his possible states?

Each element of titanium shavings is unique, it has its own length, bending lines, glare surfaces. Using these characteristics, artists approach metal from a deep media research perspective - titanium acts as a sound wave generator and an electromechanical audio signal processor. Real-time physical, chemical, and color sensor data adjust the parameters of these generators. The received sound signals are passed and processed through the body of the four curls of the shavings.

The transition to a new quality becomes the very stage that allows you to get out of the state of technological death, to reveal the internal potential of the material, previously unknown to anyone.

Four-channel sound outlines a moving sound space and forms a study area for the viewer that exists only within the established spatial and temporal limits.
