Otolithes is inspired by the language of birds and different whistled languages practiced throughout the world. By investigating the relationship with air, sound and the other through the whistle, the bodies become musical instruments that convey meaning.

Otolithes (bird’s code) inspired by the language of birds and whistled languages ​​practiced in different parts of the world. Investigating the relationship to air, sound and the other through the whistle, the bodies become musical instruments and code transmitters. The air pressure as a support in space, leads to the lifting and elevation defying the force of gravity. As we orient in the world ? through such trajectories, such as meetings and on what levels of reality ? The four bodies – sensors generate ephemeral constellations at different levels led by the otoliths, the inner ear crystals participating balance and orientation in space.
