out of breath (Chasing Echoe)
This was a commissioned work to be focused on memory. Several panels of Lexan, a material that reflects UV rays and commonly used in greenhouses, were employed in this vineyard of Tuscany to direct sound. Making use of the morphological conformation of the land, the panels allowed me to convey sound towards the center of the valley between two hills; exalting the already existing resonating conditions in order to obtain a series of short combined echoes. Thus sound becomes an apparition, where the spectator follows its own voice through the surrounding ambient.
