Dark drops

Dark Drops / Črne Kaplje [slovensko besedilo ⇊⇊]

The Dark Drops are series of works initiated by artist Robertina Šebjanič, that (re)interpret the environment of subterranean caves where time and space defy human perception.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The sound of drops Is resonating inside of glass. This sensuous submersion into the silence, darkness and cold of subterranean caves brings visitors nearer to an environment, which is hostile for humans, but this is a home for specialised organisms, that are able to survive extreme situations.
Drops that resonate in the darkness of the caves, are condensed representation of a complex and extreme environment that is still full of mystery, obscurity and a very special beauty, where the geological and biological time seem to happen in a different time span.

In the caves the sound of the water dropping has a strong presence. It is the sound that is breaking the silence. These little drops are the “information-transfer transactions” getting the info about the living conditions from above the ground to the deepness of the cave. They are also a food source for biological life and the building material for geological structures.

The simultaneous stretching and contracting of time in such conditions is difficult to comprehend, but the trickling of water somehow enables it, and the dripping of drops, echoing in the silence of the caves, implicate at a world that is much larger from ourselves.

With sound of drops resonating in a glass structures The Dark Drops (re)interpret the environment of caves where time and space defy human perception. The sound of drops Is resonating inside of glass. Drops are breaking the silence of this obscured world that is still full of mystery, darkness and a very special beauty, where the geological and biological time seem to happen in a different time span.

Črne kaplje

Zvočna instalacija, 2018

Zvok kapelj, ki resonira v steklenih strukturah Črnih kapelj reintrepretira okolje podzemnih jam. Kaplje prekinjajo tišino tega nejasnega sveta, ki je še vedno poln skrivnosti, teme in lepote, kjer se zdi, da se geološki in biološki čas zgodi v drugačnem časovnem obdobju.

Črne kaplje / o kapljanju

Zvočna kompozicija 2017

 

Odzvanjajoče kapljice v temi jam, so zgoščen prikaz kompleksnega in ekstremnega okolja, ki je še vedno polno skrivnosti, teme in posebne lepote, kjer  se zdi da se geološki in biološka čas odvijata v drugih časovnih okvirjih.

V jamah je zvok, ki prebija tišino, zvok kapljanja. Majhne a vztrajno prisotne kapljice so “prenos informacij”, vsebujejo podatke o življenjskih pogojih, ki iz gozdov, travnikov, polij in mest, pronicajo globoko v jamo in so vir hrane za biološko življenje, kakor tudi gradbeni material za geološke strukture.
