Our practice, which is often community based, aims at setting up new social ecosystems. By revolving around the mechanisms and context by which power creates systems of value, we seek to intervene on the border between art and current topics of contemporary life in order to bring about the proposition of the transitory and the utopian.
Art is a tool for change and a tool for marginal groups to give alternative perspectives on the general consensus of society, whether local or global. We think the Western world has tried for too long to impose its perspective on everything on everybody. It is about time that we stopped being so Eurocentric and embraced heterogeneity. The central difference between the western and vast parts of non- western thought is the linear idea of time that we’ve developed here and the cyclic worldview of the East. It’s important to understand that everything is interconnected and therefore we must make an effort to create a responsible culture.
Like many other artworks ours balance between a form of criticism and parody of criticism to enter into an open dialog with the people experiencing them. We are trying to balance what is seen and what is understood. Our work is not meant as an attack but more as a means of negotiation of the individual’s reality here and now; a reality where the work of art is a sign-device caught between a certain mode of representation and a different mode of interpretation. Both representation and interpretation would in the contemporaneity of the work be situated in the context of our hierarchical and violent time.
Most of our projects have been created in the urban space, a situation where we use as sound interventions to raise other symbolic and emotional values around the metropolitan area. We use this juxtaposition soundscape through the implementation of digital sounds to deconstruct and transform the situation by creating a transparent virtual sound reality. The work is done with an anthropological character with the idea of creating new environments for the emergence of the question of how the individual takes their involvement in the actual social relations. The visual aspects of sound listening interventions, that we are working on is given by the imagination of the person in your mental space to create virtual images.
