EVERYTHING WAS FOREVER UNTIL IT WAS NO MORE
• Il Palazzo Enciclopedico @ Biennale Arte - La Biennale di Venezia Venice IT
Everything Was Forever, Until it Was No More is a sculptural instrument that reproduces, at regular intervals, a music piece written for bronze bells, wide range loudspeakers, and other resonating objects. The composition is based on a contrast between the symbolically rich sound of the bells and the abstract resounding noise. By using a delay effect, Smoleński offers an insight into a world where history has come to a standstill, thereby approaching the radical propositions of contemporary physics with its perception of the passage of time as an illusion.
