Fernando Godoy’s piece is an ephemeral and performative installation based on light and analog sound. From the reuse and piracy of small computer engines and fans, the work is based on the production of autonomous kinetic devices that, when activated, produce light and sound. Using a community of these devices, the action is performed in a controlled space where devices are displayed on the ground surface as well as in different positions and heights.

Thus, the action gradually intervenes in space with light and sound phenomena derived from mechanical motion to simulate a type of artificial ecosystem.
