Project Description

Project: Diálogos Táctiles
Category: Sound Art, Video
Period: July 2007
Event: Artist Residency

The Project I presented was based on the interaction with Nodar landscape, besides the simple field recording, in which the artist acts just like a mere spectator. In this case, I sought to develop a set of “dialogues with the landscape” and not just “on the landscape”, recording the sounds generated by the physical contact (percussive) with different kinds of vegetation (trees, bushes, plants) and ground (soil, stones, water), and additionally taken as intermediary other elements that are not from the landscape but are present in it (objects left by their inhabitants). Each action arose from the natural attraction between the photographic look and the texture of each element of the landscape. The project was materialized through a set of video actions based on the previous actions an recordings.
