Dealing with the idea of randomness and constant repetition, a hybrid device that connects sculpture, movement and sound, acts as a representation of emotional state: a seemingly endless anticipation of some action. Sculpture takes the form of two plaster casts of equal size, with one being a disk player and the other a vibrating speaker. Reminiscent of a battle, rough and violent markings reflect the intimate relationship with work. Placing a great emphasis on the process of making an artwork, chiselled, scratched and broken casts expose their void volume. Traces of fight and destruction reveal the fragility of the piece. Breaking, scratching and adding texture to surfaces is the way of capturing artist’s interaction with work.
The broken blade is put in place of the needle, used as a reading device of the sculptural surface. Being out of track as the disk rotates, blade scrapes the edge so that in every turn it constantly varies the sound sequence according to the reshaping of plaster. Turntable makes circles without an end, highlighting on reiteration and indecisiveness. Vibration is transferred on the plaster disk that bounces up and down ready to break from its own weight. The machine plays itself, producing a rhythmical noise of this repetition, slightly changing on each turn. It sounds the same but it isn’t. An expectation of something to happen.
