Kinetic lights and synchronised sound installation about how information is transmitted, its persistence in time and in the memory of society.

Facts, actions and events, experienced individually or collectively, draw one’s personal memory of what has been lived. Simultaneously, it might also become the memory of society as a whole, with its own cultural trace throughout history.

This reflection is carried out by means of an audio-visual meditative experience with spherical kinetic lights. Each source of light is transmitted from one point to the next, in a metaphor about people, generations and time. Some sources fade out; some others are retained and reinforced, remaining in our memory forever.
