  Work Details  
  This sculpture, suspended freely and organically in the space, consists of 65mm-diameter plastic tubes encasing a cable core, so enabling safe and free movement within the sculpture. In the piece entitled Serpentinata, sounds flow almost visually through the Great Hall of the Old Castle. The sound-space compositions of linear, punctuated and layered sound movements along a multitude of acoustic sources become archways, snake across the floor or with their space-embracing twists and arcs, lap around those who have ventured into the sculpture. In fact, it is only with the visitors own movement in space that sculpture and ear connect. The flow of sounds, staggered fugue-like in time and space, covering now shorter, now longer paths, becomes according to the direction of the acoustic-lines an encountering, a hasty passing-by, an escort along the way - a progress through straits and expanses. Duration of sound becomes space. The visible sculpture is overlaid with a many-faceted architecture.
