Neste junho, participei do 27th International Symposium on Electronic Art em Barcelona que aconteceu nos dias 10-16 de junho de 2022.

Logo na noite de abertura fiz a performance Tortuous Drift na Casa América que foi seguida de um debate com María Antonia González Valerio, Doutora em Filosofia pela UNAM e diretora do grupo de pesquisa e criação Arte+Ciencia (Partir del pensamiento inmanente)

Tortuous Drift

Moving images and sounds recorded in selected locations of the Mediterranean as Ceuta, Gibraltar, Valencia, Ebro’s Delta, Formentera, Ibiza, Malta, Sardinia, Sicilia, and Cyprus create Tortuous Drift.  Each place has a particularity, whether geographical, subjective, social, or environmental. For example, Ceuta and Gibraltar are the entrance gate to the Sea as they are a very regulated frontier between Europe and Africa. Islands on the central Mediterranean are the entrance gate to the majority of the attempts to arrive in Europe and it states the greater number of deaths by drowning. Western Mediterranean has the saltiest sea and Ebro’s Delta is one of the areas at great risk of being flooded with global warming.

Data visualizations of salinity, conductivity, temperature, and pH of the water collected during the field trips are mixed in the performance as animated graphs, molecules and numbers. These visualizations raise questions of acidification of the sea and global warming. Another date used in the performance is the statistics of drowned persons trying to cross the sea in search of a better life. These data – social and environmental – are played together with images and sounds collected in the field trips.

In this performance layers of materials entangle together to construct a narrative with visuals and sounds. The live cinema performance is ephemeral; a time-based event that recreates the experience of sensing the Mediterranean Sea. Tortuous Drift creates a statement of this journey. It’s not a drift in a straightforward way, it’s complex, sinuous, and tangled like the feelings and stories lived in the sea. 

The performance will be presented on June 10 in Casa Amèrica Catalunya, entity that works on the links between Latin America and Catalonia, which understands culture as a tool to understand and approach the realities of the different peoples at both sides of the Atlantic.

Painel Art and possible relations in nature

Também, participei do painel Art and possible relations in nature juntamente com Clara Boj, Diego Diaz, Suzana Camara.

This panel brings three different projects to discuss possible relations of art and nature. We plan to present, think over, and bring about questions on how artists are dealing with climate change issues and how we can create new possibilities of living in balance with nature. Art projects of sensing the sea, of creating narratives of a salty lagoon and of rethinking ecologies of hops are introduced as a starting point of the discussion.
