Temporary Zone… is a site-specific, audio-environmental, interactive installation situated in the outdoor space of Fortress Mamula. Montenegrin artist Milica Janković envisions it as a sanctuary where nature and humanity harmoniously coexist, collaboratively crafting a sonic and visual landscape contingent upon one's presence. Every movement triggers a diverse interplay of sounds that blend and harmonize, fashioning a lively and responsive environment that extends a warm invitation to remain fully engaged with the surroundings. During the evening, a light installation, influenced by motion and the audio composition, becomes visible, elevating the immersive experience. Visitors are encouraged to slow down, take their time, and submerge themselves in the various ephemeral zones within the installation, each offering a distinctive composition, rhythm, and sensory encounter.
