The Unheard Life of Stones is a sound sculpture and an artificial environment, which intends to create movement within apparently immobile and solid matter such usually a stone is considered. Since the process of petrification and various stages of transition of stones most of the times exceed our own lifespan they are occult and imperceivable. We can only assume a stone which is not yet a stone or observes an already stone. The piece reflects upon perpetual processes which happen in nature without our knowledge nor participation due to our transient existence.

The stones excited with low frequencies reveal in an exaggerated way the atomic exchange between their bodies which are now intertwined in an uncanny and imposed dance .
