The artist´s comment on the artwork: “I wanted to express the similarities between objects with reduced dimensions, and how things become alike (visually and contentiously) when they are being observed with a distance. Moving lines without a stable position represent low-dimensional strings trapped in a horizontal wire, their simple plane of being, in which they are permanently rooted in. As a visual experience, they form a row of individual mesmerizing entities. I wanted to include non-interpretive emptiness in the work, to embrace the moment when one meets a work of art, and their mind is clearing a space for its potential.”

The artwork is participating in MyEstonia? competition
'My Estonia?' calls for reflections on Estonia through the eyes of foreigners. For some participants, Estonia might be a chapter of their lives, for others it may evoke more arbitrary associations or Malevich “Black Square” type of interpretations - all in all, the competition looks for a wide array of playful approaches.
