Artist Statement

Tags: Interactive Art, Sound Installation

Sono-lumínica-mano-morse: pulsating study for narrating hands is a sound installation that invites the public to interact and reflect with the world of non-hearing. I am going to exhibit this piece and present a short revision about the development process – since the idea conception until the making of- with the purpose of sharing my experience and reflections about the sense and machinic sensibility from the area of artistic production. Also, I want to expose my considerations about the relationship between the public and this type of creative works.
