Dispersion originated as an installation work joining sculpture, video and music together.
The video can be shown separately as well, and it is like that we wish to present it at the festival. Finding its inspiration in the poems of the Portugese writer Mario de Sa Carneiro, especially the poems: ‘Vontade de dormir’, ‘Estatua falsa’, ‘Dispersão’, this project attempts to find the answer to the question: ‘How and were can we escape from ourselves?’
The video was shot in Porto, Portugal in june 2008. The contrast between moving and standing still while the world around the person moves is the central element of the video.
Dispersion was developed as part of the course of fine arts at ESAP, Porto, Portugal and as part of electronic music project IV at ESMAE, Porto, Portugal
