Ana Kun - Trapped Nature

Ana Kun installs a series of blank flags with cutout texts allowing the free flowing of the air to create a soothing sound. The texts comment on the human and non-human experience of river Bega, and are placed in key-points on its riverbanks, on the south-east part. The messages can be read by looking at the landscape through the openings, trapping an image and a sound of nature with each wind gust.
