String music playing from an iPod is converted into an electric signal using an amp and transmitted through a cable, which is draped into a coil, producing magnetic feedback. Music is converted into magnetic force, which is used to move metallic objects through concrete and plaster sculptures.
Although music is playing, the only thing that the visitor hears is the faint sound of these objects trembling — a sculptural work that visualizes intangible energies.
The title refers to the heads of string instruments that have been designed in the shape of a spiral, while also alluding to the electric coil.
