"TUBE" (created at the Atelier Calder, Saché, France) can best be described as a translucent tunnel of parallel lines, created with magnetic tape. TUBE “resonates with the environment of the floating city and creates a space where vision and movement are linked by means of the body. TUBE addresses the physical and optical experiences of the viewer, and the passage of time, while creating the feeling of being inside and outside simultaneously".
'Tube' by Zilvinas Kempinas is currently showing at the Lithuanian Pavilion of the 53rd Venice Biennale.
