“Mass is a property of a physical body. It is the measure of an object´s resis-tance to acceleration (a change in its state of motion) when a net force is applied it also determines the strength of its gravitational attraction to other bodies”
Several organic dried detritus are set in a pyramid form, they have been care-fully grouped together and previously dried for days in the open sun of Brazilian rainforest of Itatiaia. One stone is taken on top of them, soon the stone visually disappears but the physical interaction between both masses continues through 37 minutes and 23 seconds. Two prepared mics are set beneath the surface and react to the weight, one external directional condenser is set externally. Although no visual movement is perceptible, the sonic response subtly remem-bers us that this two masses engage in a longer exchange, they do it so until only the rainforest sound remains. Presented under the residency “Resiliência” in Itatiaia National Reserve, Brazil.
