Visual Ghost [Showing]. Concept & Performance: Ixchel Mendoza Hernández. Sound: Chiara Picotto & Sandro Chiaravalle.
For this research I want to start with the fact that the body cannot stop communicating.
In our everyday we are able to respond to signals that are almost imperceptible and unconscious between the people around us. These body signals are received and re-interpreted and provide us a vast information about other humans like their personality, feelings or intentions. These signals can be extremely subtle but play a big role in our every day life. We are in a constant exchange and we are at the same time the giver and the receiver.
For this first face of the research I take the Spukkommune space as a laboratory. I started to experiment with visual and sound information, trying to combine them in a way they could work together or against each other in a very simple, reduced way.
(What is showed is the very very first face of a bigger research so I would be very happy to share it with you and have your feedback).
