Performative sonic installation
Is a performative sound installation, that explores the notion of posthuman feminism to trigger sensorial becomings of watery bodies. Through the encounter of sound vibrations and movement as ungraspable materialities, our aim is to exercise posibilities to unsettle our perceptions and ontologies, of body and gender.
The sound is trigger by water boxes that work as speakers, generating a dynamic feedback environment in which small gestures, movements and material pressure, activate an expanded and unexpected respose in the space.
The theoretical background of this project is based on the book Bodies of Water, from the feminist scholar and writer Astrida Niemands, combined with a movement research based on craniosacral practice.
