A tent, covering a space with sound, vision, lights and architecture modules – installation or if you prefer sculpture, which is a complex environment, where different media meet each other; and simultaneously, it is in deep connection with the place where it has been created. The modules cover a space as a chamber; they close that space, than the sounds open another, which is brand new world.
The SOUND IGLOO consists of 3 different spaces, which contain each other. The first one is the space locked by the modules, the second one is that, which is created by the sound and the third one is this inner space, which everybody has, but he/she can approach it under specific conditions. The SOUND IGLOO is designed to provide such an opportunity.
Every module, on its inner side, is covered with used DVDs and CDs. In some of the central holes of the disks, there are also used headphones from MP3 players or CD walkmans, which play specific sounds. The MP3 head speakers are not so strong, so, their sound is kind of whisper – the sound is here but in the same time somewhere faraway. Every module plays different sound. So, it depends from which point you go in the igloo, you hear different sound. Inside the igloo there is a rocking chair. When you swing on it changing your position inside the igloo, it has something as wah-wah effect. I also plan to have a bicycle, which will be something as dynamo for charging the sound devices of the IGLOO.
I plan to organize an ecological action to collect most of the materials for the IGLOO from local people, who will bring some used DVDs, CDs, MP3 or CD players and so on. It aims to involve locals to the process of creating an art piece and to make them sympathetic to the art. Everybody, who brings something, will receive a little drawing by me. So, my work depends on how quickly I would collect enough used CDs and DVDs and other materials. Actually, my idea is to make every module somewhere on a different place around the globe and in this case I'll have different modules, realized in different locations and with sounds from these different places. I calculated I'll need something as 2 months for every module, because in the best case, I can montage approximately 50 CD per day.
The dimensions of each module are same except for the roof module, which is square. The others are hexagons but not proper, genuine hexagons, but based on the proper hexagon, just with different dimensions. You can see the dimensions of the other modules on the picture below.
