Tot és aigua

“Tot és aigua” is a work that contrasts with its surroundings, the courtyard itself. A waterfall originates from the building itself, giving it life, movement and lightness, but it also contrasts with itself, as the base is a pool of physical water and the waterfall is virtual water, a video projection. The water base is also a mirror that reflects the building.

The work is complemented by the performance of a dancer, a soprano singer and digital audio. A performance, within the installation itself, that revolves around inertia and life. The voice of the soprano above the waterfall gives way to the dancer coming out of the pool.
