(de)formation #5

(de)formation #5 is a site-specific installation that uses sound, smell, and light design, to destabilize the perceptual system of the audience and propose a shift in the experience of one place. The installation is designed taking into account how we (de)code spatial information, and considering the place as a set of potential locations, trajectories and relations.

The installation works based on sensory massages. Our aim is to stimulate the senses with a composition on the threshold of perception, and provoke a different state of attention towards a place that at first seems to be unaltered. We search for details like the changing shadows on the walls, the slight reflections of the floor, or the almost silent sound of the room and we modulate them. (de)formation #5 reflects the concepts of change and movement, claiming that a shift in perception is a deformation of space.

The performance has no specific duration. Each person has the opportunity to experience the place at their own rhythm and find their personal relation to it while deciding on their position as spectators.
