Interactive installation that reflects worldwide conflicts collected during one year in media.

Interactive installation that reflects worldwide conflicts collected during one year in media. It analyses the large amount of information that we receive about specific conflicts, always seen from a comfort zone and with a certain amount of manipulation by the media.

In turn, it questions our behaviour in front of these conflicts, and the fragility of the limits in which we are apparently safe.
Based on the positioning and movement of the visitor in a delimited area, a global cartography of conflicts is discovered. The more the hot areas are shown, the greater the sound, as if it were a suffering cry for each pixel represented, until it becomes deafening, uncomfortable for the visitor.
