Memoria del hierro

English / Español / Français

A transducer system makes a metallic wall resonate, so it becomes a sort of expanded speaker. The surface amplifies the recordings gathered by the artist using contact microphones placed on the police barricades during the Mexico City’ protests against the energy reform in 2013. Originally the sounds recorded and transformed by the artist were the result of the rocks used by the demonstrators to hit the barricades.

Iron sculpture (3,50m x 3,10m x 1,10m), sound exciters, amplifiers, audio player and field recordings.
