SONORA | interactive video installation
We enter an oneiric and archaic scenario, made up of desolate landscapes, rocky surfaces, sculptures and unknown faces. We find ourselves in a context in which place and time lose their significance…
- The viewer looks at the screen and sees an abstract form that is floating in a three dimensional space, as if it were the surface of an unknown planet.
- The surface interacts with the environment, pulsating to every sound or noise picked up by the microphones installation.
- At one point this strange shape starts to rotate slowly showing another perspective. Suddenly, the viewer realizes that the strange and charmful three-dimensional figure, is nothing more than a photograph.
This is perception. It is a landscape seen from above, the surface of a statue, a face, a flower. It’s that subconscious experience of trying to recognize something. An intuitive and poetic act that allows us to appreciate beauty.

Sonora is an interactive video installation that takes a set of images, analyzes the pixels using a variant of the Rutt-Etra synthesizer and builds 3D models in real time. These virtual worlds, finally, come alive according to the audio signal from one or more microphones.
