Walking piece details
|Web Derive 01 - Online Walk|
The Transeuntis Mundi Project proposes to capture the sound and visual memory of peoples, cultural expressions and places to artistically tell the story of the millennial passersby that have been crossing the world. The composition “Web Derive 01” currently portrays the diversity of 4 countries from 4 continents and generates a poetical/documental archive of human cultural heritage.
The expression Transeuntis Mundi comes from Latin, the lingua franca of the expansion of Western Culture. It personifies the human being who has been taking the adventure to discover and explore the world.
Its methodology employs Walkscapes recordings with immersive 360° technology. From this archive, it starts a process of transmedial composition: creation of virtual reality works, videos, photographs, sound art, musical compositions and performance, with the aim to immerse the observer/participant into an experience beyond their space and time. In short, it is a combination of knowledge, innovation and poetics, supported by the processes of artistic research and mediated by transmedial technology.
