The interactive conceptual project “Message – from Your Universe” by Ivana Pirkovska represents a kind of an open astro-lab in which, through an extremely puristic poetics, she visualizes the different types galaxies which she identifies with subjects, and the subjects with galaxies. Hence the author believes that the entire cosmos is united in a single whole, in material and spiritual sense. The subjects are interconnected with invisible energy forces, with messages they receive from the universe and that need to be deciphered. The reflection of Pirkovska’s installations, is followed by cosmic sounds that are just one example (source and flow) of information inviting the viewer to connect, to look in his reflection and listen to the message of the universe, because the universe, as Nikola Tesla would write, “is alive in all its manifestations… because the stone, the plants, the animals and the human beings are contemplative and sensitive beings. The star that shines seeks to be observed, and if we were not too occupied with ourselves, we would understand her language and messages.”
