THIS IS NOT A VIDEODANCE Mariana Dias
4 to 20 December
FBAUL - Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa
Sound installation around the notion of an "expanded (human) body", a body that resonates, merges and fuses with other bodies and with the world around it; a body that extends itself through sound and image and that expands in its relationship with technology. This body moves simultaneously through different layers of existence that resonate with each other.
This installation creates a Soundscape Composition of the body-place where a human being lives. We hear sounds from inside (organs, heart) and sounds that emerge from it (breathing, voice, movements); we hear sounds from its social environment, and electronic sounds, representing technology as an extension of the body's perceptual systems or "senses"; and we also hear the voice-word, representing its mental and reflective dimension.
