We authored this work on the Warsaw garbage dump, accumulated since 1962. Exploring the site, we drew attention to its particular sound aura. Pillars, placed on the hill as an aviation warning sign, come to life under the influence of the wind, creating a group of instruments/sound generators. A unique dialogue takes place in the visible and audible space of the former landfill. A special relationship is created here between nature and the “remnants” of culture. The interactions between the sensually perceived elements of this space express the complexity of relationships in a world where everything is interconnected. 

We have recorded the image and sound of this place, convinced of the power of its immersive impact.
