Concrescence is an installation, which utilizes the physical properties of nine stainless steel sheets to make musical voice. A ‘sound-body’ is created and is similar in function and structure of the human vocal apparatus. These sheets are like muscles in contraction and seem to breathe on their own vocal folds. The fluidity of matter, the elasticity of body and the motivating force of mechanism allow to make musical sound, which is on the positive feedback system into endless changing footing. Kinetic, sound, light, shadows and reflections occupy the space and unfold a composition. Con | cres | cence (growing together) shows the attempt to preserve the qualities and characteristics of materiality and to coalesce into one. This ""concrescence"" comprises each property of the individual and creates a new organism in this concretization. In this process, the previously muted potential of the material will be unfolded.
