FOSTERING SYMBIOTIC RELATIONS, TOWARDS AN ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION
Resonant soundscapes installations in public space
This audiovisual work documents a series of soundscapes interventions in public space.
Symbiosis are immersive sound installations for a communicational experience with the biodiversity of plant life, with environmental variations and circadian rhythms.
The term symbiosis (from Greek: living together) can be broadly defined throughout the interspecies interaction. These interventions enquire on usually umperceived symbiotic relations, to offer encounters between human and non human materialities. It is an invitation to open non-verbal communication with the other than human - in this case the vegetal life - to experiment with the communicative ecology of plants. In the Symbiosis installations, we experience an hypnagogic relation with vegetal life through plants connected to electromagnetic pulse sensors, transduced in real time as sounds, with particular oscillations in the Theta and Alpha brainwaves. These were spatialised in resonance with the architectural space, resulting in an environment of constant feedback and communication between space, plants and human brainwaves.
This encounter calls for the importance of valuing our conscious communication with the variations and rhythms of the primary sensory environment. It results in a diversity of experiences of listening to unnoticed realities, as a form of activism, connection and attunement, to contribute to an ecological intimacy.
