Performance – From Pacha Mama to the Universe
The Earth’s Pulse is a performance by Argentinian artist Joaquín Fargas, where the artist intertwines our Mother Earth with the Universe by connecting special seismometers to his own body, receiving signals sent by interacting audiences from all over the world, and sending the signals btained to outer space through radio telescopes. The audience will be able to interact with the artist iin real time during the performance, by sending words and relating a message of their choice to Mother Earth (Pacha Mama and Atabey) and to the Universe. These messages will be visible on the artist’s body by projection mapping onstage. Lastly, the body of the performer will react to small, high-voltage signals, that will be controlled via the internet. The performance will take place in Buenos Aires and will be conducted by Johnny Lugo Vega in Puerto Rico. It will be live streamed at a specific time, but the recording will be accessible throughout the duration of the festival.
Festival participants will be able to interact with the artist via the performance’s website: www.joaquinfargas.com
