Spheres (Euclidian space) from Hrvoje Hirsl on Vimeo.
In Euclidean space, objects are determined by three dimensions, the x-y-z coordinates. Spheres introduce discomfort into the space and seemingly distort it by changing their volume, positions and spatial relationships. Positioned somewhere between the multiuniverse, spatial distortion and cybernetic bodies, they are unspecified bodies whose function is unknown but their presence leaves a mark in the space, bringing unrest, chaos and playfulness.
The number of the spheres is variable, depending on the size and position of the work in the space. The spheres are randomly placed in the space, unequally distant from each other, creating fields of blanks and clusters. They are pneumatic and they respond to visitors, like some excited organic creatures, leaping in the air with an accompanying whistle when someone approaches them and tries to pass by them. They are connected by a system of rubber tubes to an air supply, that is, a compressor. A system of valves and sensors determines the order of their ignition and extinction, depending upon the presence of the visitors.
