Tomas Daukša, Untitled 1, 2013
Metal, sound, 230 x 10,8 cm, 132Hz
This Thursday, March 7, 6 pm, the Review Room will introduce the latest works from Tomas Daukša (born in 1988). The artist, currently studying for the Master’s Degree in painting in Vilnius Academy of Arts, will present three objects from his ongoing project. The goal of the project in to produce works isolated from external meanings, therefore both the project and the objects remain untitled. The objects are closed logical systems where the cause and the form of the object are interdependent.
The first object is a metal pipe with audio speakers installed on both ends emitting 132 Hz noise that would be produced by the pipe of such dimensions (230 x 10.8 cm) upon impact.
The second object is an aluminium box with light trapped within: the proportions of the edges of the box refer to the proportions of the shortest and the longest wavelengths of the visible light: 400 nm and 700 nm = 4 and 7; while a gap across the box lets the light out. The third object is a light projection showing a square frame of light. The area of the frame is equal to the area it frames. The time of the projection is finite as is the square shape, therefore the projection stops every 9.89 seconds, which represents the ratio between the diagonals of the light and the area framed thereby. These closed logical systems are designed for our individual specific fields of associations in order to determine the number of references sufficient to create a meaning.
