What would a conversation between two volcanoes sound like? and what if they were talking about shaping matter? how close to sculpture can this be? Is it, by defining the landscape of the world or emerging for a breath of fresh air?
What are we listening to and what do the scientists at the CNR of Catania and the ones at the IFM – University of Linköping expect from frequenting these (audio) pieces. The liaison only takes place several thousand meters below our feet, so let’s talk about sculpture.
