Harvestworks:  “The Problem of Memory”

interactive installation, audio activated. 

Participants can listen using earphones to a track I created of narrated verse, music and conversations whose frequency and amplitude are generating the visuals on two walls (walls #1,#2)

When participants talk into one of the provided microphones,  the impact of their voice is projected on wall #2 altering the visuals. And their voice is recorded added to the audio track, hence generating new visuals on wall #1

Every sound  leaves a mark, which is eventually altered and distorted by new imagery and new voices have added.

Opening Reception: Monday December 5th 2016 7-9PM

When approached, a large projection of  volcanos begins to disintegrate.

Simultaneously, illustrations of the poem The Drowned Horse appear on the opposite side of the room.

“Far Away, installation” demonstrates our propensity towards ownership and disruption.

 In this installation, the disruption is represented by a volcanoe which we are effecting by our very presence. The volcanoes lava, in a sense, is the imagery  of a poem (“The Drowned Horse” by Pablo Antonio Cuandra which warned of  invasion of Nicaragua) spilling into the room.

Screening of my documentary in progress “Far Away: Poetry in Nicaragua“.

“Far Away” is a multi-platform (film, web, fine art, interactive installations) project on poetry in Nicaragua Background: I am of Nicaraguan descent and I conceived of  far away  when first visiting relatives there in Nov. 2013 and again in Nov. 2015. I returned in February 2018.
