Brooklyn, NY Interactive installation
Silent barn, three month projection installation, 2015: audio generated braille machine. Braille says a full page narration from kids in Nicaraguan. When approaching the projection, each stair generates another paragraph
Audio- Generated braille light machine: ““I’m not telling you what to do, but you have to do it.”
February 7th -April 21st 2015.
Presented with sewn canvasses;
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.
6PM TUESDAY DECEMBER 6TH
This is an experimental documentary on Nicaraguan history told through its poetry. Participants include: New York State Poet Laureate (2014) Marie Howe and previous Vice President of Nicaragua, Sergio Ramirez .
“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.
