Snow in Mória

Snow in Mória


prototype on view at ateliers ouverts, Cité internationale des arts, Paris, July 2021


Snow in Mória [working title] is a sound installation made in collaboration with Refocus Media Labs (Lesvos, Greece). The piece will be an installation of two tall, parallel, cinderblock walls with speakers embedded, “bleeding” the sound of water. The audio is composed from field recordings gathered from important sites of migration and deportation, including the camps in Lesvos, tent camps around Paris, as well as the Holocaust deportation memorial on the Île de Cité, Paris.
