Exhibition by Paula Vītola - Waves.Lights. Shadows.

In the works of this exhibition you can see artistic experiments and attempts to understand things that seem self-evident - sound and light. Light is used in the works to create sounds through the photo-acoustics discovered by Alexander Graham Bell in 1880.

The artist Paula Vītola has developed various prototypes for the generation of sound through light in her performances. The components include motors, strings, Christmas lights, water bottles and other items, a sound recording device that uses a mirror and sunlight instead of a microphone, and a device that even picks up the sound of wings of insects.

The artist's experiments can be seen in the exhibition: sketches, video material, devices and tools for creating sounds. The generation of sound and experiments becomes an exciting and playful process that visitors can not only observe but also participate in.
