Immersive sound installations
This area of work involved the design and implementation of immersive sound installations created using wetlands field recordings and the time-lapse montage method.
The sound art installation “A Queda do Céu” by André Mestre explores the acoustic features of the Valdivian wetlands and its conflicting place in the eyes of local residents. Visually, the work is reminiscent of the Arte Povera movement, and provides a minimalistic display of wetlands constitutions, with and interplay between water, reflections, and hundreds of wooden pieces. The sculptural centerpiece is framed by a spatial and aural presentation that suggests, at the same time, both a critical and an aesthetic perspective on these fragile ecosystems.
