Emiliano Zelada is the first artist invited to form part of the Sonic Trails commission series presenting a work that deals with TATE Modern’s whole architecture. Inspired by Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space (1958), he introduces the spontaneity of nature into the geometrism of architecture – intended as empty volumes.
The use of constructed space and sound of animals, leads to an act of presence rather than the establishment of such elements. In each Level the visitors will find its corresponding outside environment, only to discover it as an abstract geo-physical distribution that goes from un-heard sounds of whales and stars to the broad spectrum of endangered animals.
