An audio-visual installation utilizing vertically and horizontally suspended glass plates. They function both as membranes of sound diffusion and as specimen holders for flying seeds, confined to a regular arrangement of petri dishes. The space is conditioned by filtering the daylight. Seeds refer both to their origin and to the potentiality of new live (or death). They symbolise motion or traveling. Dissemination as continuous re-writing, a structure of movement, rather than fulfillment.
Dissemination and Temporality (talk)
We discuss our installation «Dissemination», looking at its genesis and background. We first focus on Nayarí's research on migration and site-specific art. We will then discuss the sound composition, and ways to structurally represent generative pieces while composing them. We look closer at the SoundProcesses framework used, which allows to compose and interconnect such processes, and examine how the creation of the piece unfolded in time.
