dvd ntsc 17.13 min. 2 video (duplicated) & 4 channels audio installation
A young woman is having tea naked and alone in a state of intimacy, different things begin to happen that relates to her feelings, thoughts, and dreams, and back to the drinking of the tea. This gives a pause and a reiteration working as a bridge between the different scenes. In the music part different synthesis algorithms were studied, also digital manipulation of sampled sounds and different possibilities of spacialization given by the use of four channels.Most of the material used in the music was taken from the video and manipulated with digital tools created for this piece. For the visual part the screen was divided in three and in nine segments, depending on the scenes, giving relevance to the temporal relations with the music, the videos were modified with different algorithms.
