TRAUMA, 2010

Within a display case we percieve a pair of earplugs made of faience and placed on a base. Its shape, same as earplugs, only seems to be malleable without actually being it. While approaching to Traume, the spectator hears an unpleasant whistling sound, similar to the experience of tinnitus.

This piece contains contradictions, including, for exemple, the inability to stop the perception of tinnitus in the ears - a purely solitary phenomenon - with the help of the earplugs that become nothing but the instrument of torture.
