|Marta Ferracin materia vibrante (sonora) [detail] 2016|
Marta Ferracin recent works populates Articulate's long narrow gallery with an ecology of artworks incorporating sound, sculptural strategies, photography, video media, and contexts of encounter representative of the artist’s ongoing engagements with everyday materials, personal digital media technologies, fields of perception and animist cosmologies.
The exhibition’s central work is materia vibrante (sonora), an exciting electro-acoustic installation developed during a 2015 Largo das Artes’ residency in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Representing our shared universal plane of existence where diverse entities energetically commingle in flickering cycles of life and death, appearance and disappearance, being and nothingness, it is a kinetic array of 32 suspended speaker cones filled with various natural materials that vibrate and dance in harmonic resonance with an original multitrack soundscape.
