Sound by Dídio Pestana

This installation takes place in a small house made of wood with 200cm x 200cm x 200cm. Inside,  there are several objects made of vegetables, plastic tubes and wood sticks. These objects found themselfs in a processes of drying, they are like an alive record of an unidirectional way of time passing by.
A part from the objects there is also a sound installation inside house. The present sound is the one taken from the cabbages, with the help of contact microphones, during the process of construction of the objects.
That sound is a kind of a memory that remarks the drying/dying process of this “beings”.
