Inspired by the topography of a Venezuelan river in the Canaima region, the abstract 3D-printed sculpture questions the arrival of technology in this ancestral forest threatened by the pollution of illegal gold mining. The sound piece that accompanies it, entirely made from field recorded sounds, recomposes a fictional reality that invites the listener to sensorialy experiment those drifts by following the path of the water from the upstream of the river to the sea and its passage in the extractivists machines. Together, the sculpture and the sound piece question the dichotomy between nature and culture, human and animal generated by the binarity of our contemporary technological systems.
