Metal grille, paper, fan, microphone amplifier, speaker.
This work is taken from a scene in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1972 film ‘Solaris’. In the scene a scientist on a distant space station uses a paper ‘comb’ placed over an air vent to create the sound of leaves rustling in a tree, saying it’s a reminder of home. It holds a great sense of the uncanny, while trying for the familiar.
The vent is made using the same pattern as ‘Blue Weave’, based on the stone form in Dürer’s ‘Melancholia I’.
