Cry of the Earth by Gaëtan Robillard and Isabelle Daéron
This creation falls in with one of the traditions of the “Horizons Arts Nature” Festival. Made up of earth and vegetable matter, this piece won’t be dismantled at the end of the festival. Instead, it will be preserved in lieu and will be eroded away by wind and rain. 100% biodegradable, the work is built from compressed earth on-site. “Cry of the Earth” comprises of a 3-metre hill and a total area of 150m, the shape of the mound reminding the viewer of a volcanic landscape. The installation shows visitors what lays within the infinitely small, through two sensitive devices that record sound activity and the production of heat. Based on the principle that bacterium grows off the energy present in the earth, an oak cornet broadcasts and reveals the sound activity of organic entities that inhabit this mud hut. From smoke to sound, here is a mini volcano and a spectacular view for a few lucky hikers!
“Cry of the Earth” by Gaëtan Robillard and Isabelle Daéron is on display at Murol.
