Opening: SILENCIOS ENTRE VIBRACIONES: *.WAV
Mikel Arce takes water, sound, light, and space and uses them to make visible and audible the duality of standstill and movement - of passivity and activity. He works with a range of sensory patterns: changes in the material (water) develop from calm (silence) through to activity (sound, vibration), then assume a static form, and finally return to calm.
A conjunction of sight, hearing and feeling creates a convincing narration, which we as observers are able to follow. The moments of silence lead into reflection, when the water surface is calm - in expectation of the next change in sound forms and thus an interruption in the unfaltering monotony during which the sound, as a uniquely tangible element, finally triggers a shift in the water particles. The absence of information, the observed void and lastly a passage into meditation during the silent moments facilitates comparison and analysis, so strengthening the impression of what happens next.
