It is a particularly created space equipped with six interconnected sets of 92 speakers which play abundantly structured sounds of various frequencies and a mix of words in different languages at the same time. Besides the acoustic perceptions, the installation effect is visual and haptic which is caused by the characteristics of the material construction of the artwork. It is the first Díaz’s holophonic space.
Dehibernation has been exhibited at the Biennale of Young Artists in Prague City Gallery in 1994 and the exhibition Netz Europa in Linz, Austria.
