Project of sculptural installation establishing the relationship between matter and space, developing 3 parts :

A piece of textile sculpture that will become an installation in the future, a sculpture that can be touched, smelled and felt.

Listen to the sound of the wind created from my drawings of the The landform that surrounded me.

Interpretation of landscape morphology in textile sculpture. // Prototypes (Models of future installation pieces as you can see in the sketches, piece of great height and suits the exhibition space)

Video made from joining all the drawings and sketches made during the process of sound experimentation + the sound is obtained after listening to one of the drawings by mobile app. ( Read instructions below).

Instructions about “no-sound” experimentation / Guide to be able to listen to the non-sound of the sculpture and the emptiness of the space that surrounds us :

GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION OF LANDSCAPE IN SOUND CODE

2D barcode of the audio as a sound piece of the graphic representation of the sound (an analogy with the QR-CODE, code can be read in real time) .

When we look inside the drawing of the mountains as if from a zum and we extend it, the small graphisms become musical codes.

Research process

Pieces sewn on paper, to play with the volume obtaining different “sound” qualities.
Graphic representations of industrial “No-sound” heard from the residence studio and “no-Sound” interpretation of geological morphology. The use of the telephone gives us immediacy playing with the concept here /now, on the other hand, we ask ourselves the use of technology and the influence of man in nature and the transformation of the landscape.
