a Natureza não faz barulho [Nature makes no noise], by davor sanvincenti
in collaboration with adriana romero and joana patrão
Created during an artistic residency at gnration and presented to the public for the first time, Nature Makes no Noise is Davor Sanvincenti’s new environmental audiovisual installation. In the spring, during his stay in Braga, the Croatian artist travelled to the Gerês Natural Park to capture and record sounds and images of animals in their natural habitat. Using an ambisonic sound trap, designed by Davor specifically to capture the sounds of animals in their natural habitat, the artist was able to put together a set of videos and images that form the centrepiece of this project. These recordings also contribute to the assessment of biodiversity in these areas, anthropogenic noise and noise pollution, as well as becoming valuable archive material for future generations. Created in collaboration with Portuguese artists Adriana Romero and Joana Patrão, Nature Makes no Noise centres on the interpretation of the documents collected in Gerês in the form of psychoacoustic phenomena and interaction with light, objects and images.
