"Coimbra Conections", tri-channel instalation, 2012

"Coimbra Connections" is inspired by observations, interactions, discoveries and experiences of Coimbra during the residency the artist held in that city. Explores the dynamics of social and cultural life Coimbra, as well as its architecture and how it connects with your people and nature. "Coimbra conections" reflects the city's culture, architecture and nature through a series of animated virtual sidewalks.
During our stay in Coimbra, the artist documented his cultural life through more than 1,500 photographs and audio recordings. This audio-visual documentation and its many relationships its people, culture, architecture and the natural life were used as inspiration to create audio-visual abstractions of their findings.
