the noise that the silence


Slab intervened with text
80 x 80 cm

“A sound piece that doesn’t sound,” commented Manuel Rocha Iturbide about a previous set-up I made of this piece, intervening with vinyl text a wall of the Fonoteca Nacional de México (Mexican National Sound Archive). I often underline “passages” that allude to sound in literary works. This content seems highly evocative and hard to materialize in aural frequencies. That is why I chose a slab to support a possible story built with brief fragments of the works of writers who were influential through my adolescence. My goal was to condense a work with silent, quiescent sound. At once, a sort of epitaph.
