De novo, Ercilia

“De Novo, Ercília” (2012) is an interactive sound installation that invites the visitor to cross and experience body and sound standards, interacting with the elastics. In his book “The invisible cities”, Italo Calvino mentions Ercília, one city where extend wires designate the relations between people and things. From times to times, Ercília is abandoned and reassembled in another place.
