“Águas de al-mar”

Laurita Ricardo de Salles (Brazil)

Águas de al-mar is a video art work that presents a succession of video clips of the waters of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, in a cinematic and metaphorical sound flow to the emotions of the soul. The work is linked to the notions of expanded cinema and exhibition cinema and reflects on their relationships with cutting, framing and scene in the audiovisual. The camera's points of view may or may not be frontal to the movement of the water where the images are not located anywhere, offering direct shots of the movement of the water, without horizons, moving away from the notion of landscape.

Montage constructs a filmic narrative in the broadest sense, through the sequence of images and the succession of frames arranged according to a flow of forms: single or multiple frames or stills, in temporal succession with moments of presentation of different sets of clips. La banda sonora involucró un enfoque estético y técnicas escogidas referentes a la música electroacústica donde se llevó a cabo la etapa final del proceso compositivo con la manipulación de los sonidos mediante collage, inversión, transposición, gradación, disminución, aceleración y otros parámetros.

The work proposes a circuit of flows that takes advantage of the imaginary/temporal/sound freedom investigated by the Visual Arts and Video Arts.
