The installation of Resonare de Inter Solaris builds on the previous work of Inter Solaris. This was a kinetic sculpture capable of melting and thus reshaping fragments of local rocks in various open-air environments using the sun's rays. The actions of Inter Solaris were intended to record a unique moment, which was recorded thanks to the melting into the rock. Here, the rock, in addition to being a medium, served as evidence of the place where the action took place and the resulting artifact of the process.The original work of Inter Solaris is now undergoing another transformation. Its parts are deconstructed and placed in new constellations. The invisible geometry of the magnetic lines of force with which the sculpture works functions here as a connecting element, allowing the individual components to communicate with each other. The main artefact here, which was originally a rock transformed by a sunbeam, is a series of drawings created by the action of a robotic arm. This procedural reproduction of the rocks suggests their further progressive analysis, creating a relic of the past actions of the kinetic sculpture Inter Solaris.
