In Island Attunements viewers encounter a kaleidoscopic landscape oscillating between outer and inner worlds. The installation combines video and procedural animation (developed with Sakke Soini/Veli Studio) with a sonic landscape developed (with Nuno da Luz) from field recordings—across a range of frequencies, above and below aquatic and terrestrial surfaces of São Miguel Island—conjuring a meditative experience. São Miguel teems with visible and hidden vitality and churns with geothermal activity. Similarly, below the threshold of conscious awareness, the psyche confronts the incessant gibbering of the body, an integral ocean of memory, emerging from—still steeped in—the swirling 4 billion year old genetic pool shared by all life. Islands have long been seen as laboratories of evolution; Island Attunements imagines an island where inhabitants bring biological memory into consciousness, intervening in evolutionary processes amid climate change.
