Performance at the Pärny city gallery? ----- This is a project with what I am working on this summer. I would love to implement it to the residency activities as well. This project is about to create art from natural materials and non natural recycled materials. Aim of the project is to make installations from these materials so, that when moved/touched they make a sound. Then I will use the sounds to create a musical performance. The purpose of the project is to show how non natural materials bind natural materials (result is the sound), show the contrast between them and create discussion about the topic.
