Red Bull Station

São Paulo B~R

August 2014

Collecting Silence is a sound installation that brings together ‘silent’ recordings on five continents.


At the invitation of the artist, thirty-one people sent sound records that they would consider to be a moment of silence. A symbolic and romantic gesture, as it is scientifically impossible for man to be in contact with the total absence of sound.


The work was developed during the residency RedBull Station in downtown Sao Paulo and was shown at the end of the residency in the basement of the building, in a dark room, where the recordings were played at the exact moment they were recorded, divided into 5 speakers mapped through the space, one for each continent.


The map/infographic allowed navigation by region or time.
