Video work “Répercussion”, created by artist Andrés Padilla Domene, narrates the story about the search of sonic marks in the territory of historical geological events: “65 million years ago, a rock of unknown origin travelled through space to percute the Earth to put an end to three quarters of the life on the planet. At the region of the impact, a group of searchers venture into the darkness of a Mayan cave to explore the acoustics of the place. They set in a strange technical ritual to evoque the cosmic crash”.
Andrés Padilla Domene, b. 1986 in Guadalajara, Mexico, is a multimedia artist based between Mexico and France. He studied Media Arts in Mexico and in Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains in France.
