Art Event Overview:


    Nereida is the beginning of a project to design, build and ultimately operate an underwater station, the purpose of which is to make contact and to create some kind of intelligent link with cetaceans in their natural habitat, free from any type of domination and without restricting their freedom. A series of experiments are performed based on some aspects of chaos theory and on the fact that, in dolphins and whales, observation and communication mechanisms constitute one and the same circular, indissoluble process based on sound waves.

    Nereida is an underwater, molten-quartz musical instrument. The capsule design is based on the Plasmaht Mirror, the Harmonic Spectral Resonator, and the Spectral Subharmonium, tools created to bring to light, through resonance phenomena, harmonic elements and distinctive signals which are usually found hidden in the architecture of those things we describe as being
    natural.
