Matteo CRIVELLA [Italy]


This is a simple instrument that is sensitive to the motions of the ground underneath it. A metal ring placed on a corner of a metal plate starts to rotate when there is an earthquake. Although several earthquakes have hit Italy in recent years, countermeasures to prevent casualties in future disasters are still insufficient. The artist created this work hoping to alarm the public about this troubling situation.
