DOMESTIC QUAKES



Having noted Julijonas Urbonas' 2010 Euthanasia Coaster over at Archiact, I was compelled to find some more of his work. Another piece, sharing the same whimsy-come-controversial nature as his Euthanasia Coaster, caught my eye. His Domestic Earthquake Generator transforms a guest's door tap into an intense object trembling - akin to a one-object earthquake.

I am not sure if they have earthquakes in Lithuania; but this 'quake' is certainly a tame version of the global destruction we have seen of late. The domestication of the quake allows us to reclaim space, ground, and stability as intimate aspects of our lives, rather than as the uncertain fears they have become. Beautiful.
