Migrating Sediments


recycled rubble, wood 3 x 1,5m

The main character of this project is a pile of recycled sand. The pile, a migrant in transit, speaks of her journey, not toward ‘integration’, as envisioned by dominant discourses on migration, but rather toward possibility and further creation. The pile’s account of how words and concepts travel with the movement of her body expose the interconnectedness of sonic and semantic territories, as well as the untranslatability of some of the borders encountered (material and symbolic). Piles have their own language; A language marked by scattered lines of erosion. This project invites the viewer/listener to discover their own possiblilties of connection and dialogue with the non-human that surround us.
