The world we live in is vibrating in its nature. All forms of life, from minerals and microbes, to mammals and humans, vibrate and pulsate unceasingly. Each form vibrates in the frequency pattern allowed by its composition, and by its material elements.
Five Cypriot artists, Fotos Dimitriou, Christiana Charalambous, Anastasia Lambaski Onisiforou, Andri Iona and Anna Vassiliou, create prototype musical instruments in an effort to constitute an interactive relationship with the visitors of the exhibition through clay and strings
