Interwoven

Justina Christauskaitė’s installation art metaphorically addresses the contemporary fear of disconnection from nature. It presents a bed-like structure, crafted from woven wires, nestled within a haystack, evoking the imagery of a cave or womb entrance. This piece symbolizes the intricate relationship between nature and technology, drawing a parallel between the wire structures and the mycelial networks of fungi in both functionality and form. Visitors are invited to recline within this setup, where they can experience auditory stimulation through music, enveloped by the tactile comfort of the wire constructs. This immersive interaction underscores the necessity of reestablishing our bond with the natural world, while positing the hypothesis that technology possesses a vibrancy akin to that of living organisms.
