January 2017
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The video is made of an empty space (apparently an untouched beach) which is filled up slowly with vendors.
The microphone is positioned in the middle of the frame so as they group together the sound gets louder. Their constant moving back and forth in search of buyers seem to have no effect other than composing a moving chorus or symphony.
The piece embodies a new perspective, both on what beach life is like, and on the current economic crisis in Rio de Janeiro.
For this project collaborated with artist; Olav Lorentzen and filmmaker Kayhan Lannes on the production of the piece. Later exhibited in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
