Because Tomorrow Comes
Interactive sound installation (2011)
Acoustic art, declined in the form of music or sound art, is my primary field of investigation and it finds a complementary element in visual art attempting to find a natural synthesis (non synaesthetic) between these two forms of expression. A transversal approach leads my attention to register silences and imperceptible variations of sound, and to note geometries, fragments and marginal spaces where the spectator’s perceptions of sight and sound are not saturated with pre-constituted information, so that the creative process can intervene with a methodical semantic reprocessing of the data of reality.
The installation Because Tomorrow Comes was created for the exhibition Eavesdropping curated by Matteo Marangoni in the former embassy of the Congo, Villakabila, in The Hague (The Netherlands). The site specific intervention focuses on the dialectic between inside and outside, propping up the wooden ceiling of the basement of the abandoned building in a vain attempt to prevent its collapse, but also to defend a inner space from the pressure of the outside world on the statically unstable building. The speakers were used to thicken and support the beams, they were diffusing the sounds of the creaks of the ceiling to which they were leaning.
