    555 bugs is a performative installation in which Maria Komarova creates a landscape out of found objects and diy electro-acoustic instruments. In it, elementary materials find new meanings in spontaneous connections between each other. They interact, move, resonate and produce tiny sounds: rustling, crunching, squeaking, cracking. Daily objects become something else, specific sonic creatures with their own qualities. The seeming primitivity and repetitiveness of the soundscape brings the listener into a world of menthol buzzers, one-eye sirens, lemon tadpoles, ginger tigers, plastic bugs and other insects.
