Metal grille, paper, fan, microphone amplifier, speaker.
This work is taken from a scene in Andrei Tarkovskyâ€™s 1972 film â€˜Solarisâ€™. In the scene a scientist on a distant space station uses a paper â€˜combâ€™ placed over an air vent to create the sound of leaves rustling in a tree, saying itâ€™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 â€˜Blue Weaveâ€™, based on the stone form in DÃ¼rerâ€™s â€˜Melancholia Iâ€™.
