Fermion is a specific architectonic intervention, a construction covered with plastic film. It divides the space and inserts an element which materialises the omnipresent existence of the gravitation field in its natural functioning. The surface of Fermion serves as a projection surface for the animation of an active point. The point is supported with a solid centre from which it expands and contracts. At the same time, the initial and final states of the point pulsation, which move against each other, are captured. Again, the process of the form transformation is a result of scanning visitors’ movements in the installation space. Besides generating visual perceptions, the extent of Ferminon’s communication is strengthened by the sound of which frequency again reacts to the visitor’s closeness.
