a special thank you to all INTERATIVOS participants!

27 Nov

Thanks to everyone who joined INTERATIVOS creative workshop and exchange and to The Create Place at St Margaret’s House for hosting us. I had a blast!
Interesting chats, new friends and collaborations. What a pleasant time with lovely people, nice snacks and lots of cups of tea. Below, a few shots of the day and some of our creations.

If you want to come back or if you missed it, add the new dates to your diary: in 2017 we’ll be at The Create Place (29 Old Ford Road E2) every first Saturday of the month, from 11:00-15:00, starting on the 7th of January.

Hoping to see you there for the next INTERATIVOS and another inspiring day!

Ibero-American Arts Awards exhibition

15 Nov

My interactive sound sculpture “Through the Sky” was of the 30 shortlisted “Utopian” artworks selected to the Ibero-American Arts Awards exhibition,  opening tonight at the Embassy of Brazil London.

“You stand in front of the sculpture, play the sound, close your eyes, and let yourself travel that just exist in you, somewhere, where all your dreams are, and where you feel free.”

Inspired by the power of believe in something you cannot see or explain, but that you can feel, mystical – a concept so present in Ibero-American culture and its rituals-, the sculpture “Through the sky” plays with the idea of ascension.

A series of artefacts, with irregular shapes and heights, in white and blue, as in my view are how clouds are – or the idea of it the concept of something rising through the pots, I recorded the sound of wind, adding a dramaticity to it, and inviting you, the viewer-participant to play it, becoming part of the installation, to ascend to a place that doesn’t exist. Or that just exist in your mind. A place where you go to let go of things you don’t need/ want anymore, that bothers you, somehow a healing experience in the search of freedom.

The work was created following my research on the observation of the environment around me and the idea of slowing down; been able to stop, even for a few seconds, and relax… dream with a new future. The result is the sculpture, which is my interpretation of it, but the work can have different meanings and interpretations depending on each individual’s background and experience.
