VOCODER & CAMOUFLAGE: Tactics of Decay, 2018
Installation — Vegetal Matter / Light / Sound / Gas
Installation dwelling on electrical toxicity through a technicolor jungle inhabited by spectral organisms, ruins of voice and glimpses of filtered light. The simulation of a vegetation mechanism renders its decay visible through a plethora of branches and leaves — a suspended forest. The massive carcass of floral debris is activated by the vibration of light, sound and gases exhaled by the organic process of decomposition, while the languishing centre of the construction is filled with colourful and synthetic scintillation. The vegetal cluster
becomes a screen; a surface of stalks and leaves mutated into a decadent container of digital optimism. The vibrational lymphatic network is stimulated by resonance, radiance and odor. Inside a sound system a circuit of artificial voices coexiste with other accidental polymorphic organisms.
