During his residence at LABoral, Edu Comelles will develop the project Prat, winner of the DKV Seguros - Álvarez Margaride Production Grant. The result of his residency will be presented in an exhibition that will open on June 21st and can be visited until September 2019.

Prat is a sound and visual installation that through a system of about 50 loudspeakers recreates a soundscape of an imagined meadow. By means of a multifocal system, the installation will transform LABoral's exhibition space into a landscape inspired by the summer meadows, created, however, from artificial sounds that are unconnected to this natural context.

At sound level the piece will be built taking as a starting point sounds produced by electrical household appliances, mobile devices, computers and any kind of contraption that produces waves or electromagnetic fields. These waves, which fill our daily lives, are inaudible to humans and pass completely unnoticed.

The artist will use a process of registration and sound design to construct a landscape formed by an infinite number of insects that as a whole will weave a sound environment. Thus, Comelles reflects on the ubiquity of contemporary communication systems, the invisibility of electromagnetic waves and the effects of the so-called anthropocene on natural systems.
