Kazakhstan landscape and natural phenomena (Sand dunes sound & sea leve)

http://aboutkazakhstan.com/about-kazakhstan-geography

There are quite a few unique natural phenomena in Kazakhstan. For example, you may listen to “concerts” of signing sands in the environs of the resort of Ayak-Kalkan (Almaty region): here the sand dunes, being moved by the wind produce sounds which are as loud as the blasting of a ship siren.

Situated in Mangyshlak (the peninsula which juts out into the Caspian Sea) is the dry Karagiye Sink, the deepest in the FSU, with a depth of 132 meters below sea level. Then in Kazakhstan there are vast underground lakes, intricate canyons, and mysterious ice mountain Muztau – an iceberg on land.

The landscape photos of Lake Tengiz reminds me of the organic arrangement of gears I imagine.

MOVEMENT VS. STILLNESS

  1. I really like your comparison between your gears and the constant changing landscape. The gear seems to become a kind of metaphor for the consistency of inconsistency found in nature. The gear is also a way to transfer energy from one object to another which also can be seen in the natural world and also affects the form that object takes.
