Research station hovering above the ocean of Solaris – Object and brooch – 2021
Materials: anodized titanium, silver 925, driftwood, sea shell, wood stain, shellac ink
Research station hovering above the ocean of Solaris is an object with removable brooch. The brooch represents the research station.
The story of the novel Solaris from Stanisław Lem happens on board a research station, send to understand the extraterrestrial intelligence which is the ocean. It is something that is organic, but has no cells, organs or nervous system. In my imagination it is like a Fata Morgana, shimmering on the horizon and changing colours and forms, creating visible complex structures on the surface sea. The ocean interacts and plays with the station and the scientists, materializes their imaginations. It creates visitors, that come from their thoughts. It has the ability to control magnetic fields. What effects would it trigger in humans? This bound is possible only between the research station and the planet Solaris. It is a kind of unique relationship, that is beyond any imagination.
My object and brooch are build and connected together as one. But it`s possible to separate the research station and wear it as a brooch.
