Julijonas URBONAS


A set of installations that uses five doors to well-known public buildings in Lithuania’s capital Vilnius. Equipped with electronic devices, the set of doors became a portal that responds to Lithuania’s Democracy Index, a musical instrument, a kinetic sculpture, a door that counts the number of people going through it, and even a source of earthquakes when it was hit. Accompanied by a door events workshop, it was an experimental work that evoked a series of surprises.
