ATTEMPTED SIMILAR ACTION
intention Installation and performance are two equal components of the work. They exist to live in a perfect correspondence. If we consider the urban space as an art installation, what could be a form of action that the individual (as a dynamic element) can respond with to this installation? The project aims to extend the cartographic similarity between two urban spaces. This two urban areas, located in two different cities and countries are both placed in industrial areas: Via della Liberta (Venice) Boulevard and Almohad (Casablanca). The idea is to focus on other important elements that compose these two urban spaces, like sonority and dynamic of action. In this way we can identify other similarities and differences between these two spaces, perceiving possible characteristics of urban spaces by creating a fictional fusion. 2 performers test coexistence in a white square of 3x2 m. Each performer is wearing headphones and each of them listens to one of the sounds captured in the two different urban areas (Casablanca, Venice). While listening the bodies are moving depending the terms of action they hear (stop, change in levels, crossing, lie down, turn, turn ... etc)
