at CalArts California Institute of Arts
California - 2013
This installation was created in Los Angeles, at CalArts University, using rests of Elm tree cutted by the institution.
With all the demonstrations on 2013 over the new Forest Code in Brazil was almost impossible to not to think in a project which could make reference to the discussion.
Are We really aware of the distruction that We generate?
Even when the sound of this action is extremely amplified, We still find pleasure in the violent act of hammering nature.
Using contact microphones, We give another meaning for a basic construction function. Hammering.
The wood log is transformed into a synthesizer and the sound speakers are suspended in the air, throwing wood dust in each blow.
The public is invited to hammer, listen and tune with each other.
