Glass Fossil III. Koshenkova Maria.2009. Site Specific Installation

Glass Fossils.Exposition in Museum of Precambrian Geology and Archeology in Petrozavodsk. 2009

I was focusing on similarity between anatomic and computer aesthetics. Resemblance between men made technical constructive beauty and bio-animalistic structures. Electric cables mutate into tree branches and roots or petrified veins and arteries. Foto credit: Lars Kaae

Here I included “BioCables ” in the exposition of  Museum of Precambrian geology and Archeology in Petrozavodsk (North Russia)


I wanted to integrate sculptures as smooth as possible into museum exposition.
The soviet oldfashioned organism of the museum( especially “babushka-guards )))) first was negative to my intervention idea but after they saw the result they wanted to leave it there ))))


On this location I could see that my idea about fossilized glass structures -works!.

Pieces very naturally take a place in the exposition row of 100000 year old minerals and geological maps.
