Description

In the installation 7, Díaz develops the main themes of his work used in Dehibernation and Spin. The installation has a shape of a closed space equipped with speakers which create holophonic sound following the viewer’s movement. The numerical designation refers to the installation’s layering into seven individual sound fields. Gradual passage through all seven zones and their cognition then reflects one’s opportunity to reveal things that are otherwise hidden in his soul.
