The Rhythm of Geysers is a poem to the earth bringing to the foreground the musical diversity of the geothermal site.

The visitor’s participation is needed for the evolution of the display
of the work. By participating the user creates his/hers personal experience of visual and sound composition of the geysers.
The experience of the one participating is similar to playing
an instrument or rather being a conductor of different
musicians playing different instruments.

The different geysers are the musical instruments of this work
and the musical harmony are created by the different rhythm
and pitches reached at different stages of an eruption
