Filaments of a Circle

Filaments of a Cicrcle- Sol rezza Analucía Roeder 2021 (4)

Featuring sound artist Sol Rezza (Argentina) and visual artist Analucía Roeder (Peru), Filaments of a Circle is experimental storytelling that has as its central axis the idea of the Alice in Wonderland syndrome, a rather rare clinical condition characterized by brief episodes of distortion in the perception of body image and of the size, distance, shape or spatial relationships of objects, as well as in the passage of time.

It seems that the writer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) suffered from severe migraines and may have experienced this syndrome, which was reflected in Alice’s experiences during her journey down the rabbit hole. In these strange times, we are going through a distortion of reality, of the present time and a sense of incomprehension of our future. We find ourselves disoriented in a sea of possibilities, technology has completely changed our ways of perceiving the world around us. We find ourselves going down the rabbit hole.

The title of this work has been chosen in a visual game, like the filaments of a plant floating in a glass of water. This physical phenomenon causes a distortion similar to the perceptions experienced during the Alice in Wonderland syndrome.

The multilingual storytelling (English, Spanish, Portuguese, German) is divided into 4 different spatial sound stories of 5 minutes each where the idea of each piece is to describe an object or situation from this distortion of perception, the sensations produced by this perception.
