«A transdisciplinary investigation»

Fractura is a transdisciplinary investigation that originates from the sound world of the artist Simon Grab. It explores the creation of a collapsed ecosystem through changes, discontinuities and ruptures. The piece is inspired by the destruction of ecosystems caused by the extractivist capitalist system, specifically focusing on
the oil extraction process called Fracking. This method, illegal in many countries worldwide, is currently in use in Argentina, particularly in the Vaca Muerta formation located in the province of Neuquén. It has direct effects on biota and the population, causing precarious living conditions immersed in these new anthropogenic landscapes.
Through Simon’s raw sounds, Fractura creates a dystopia, a space where a rupture occurs in the natural balance, in temporal frameworks, a system failure opening an energetic channel to a liminal space where life becomes toxic. A creature explores this new space, either framed by the screen or projecting itself within it. The combination of these diverse materialities translates into a choreography of pulsating forces struggling between connection and disconnection, synchrony and desynchronization, creating the complexity and dynamism of this new world.
