UmbraL by Alvaro Muñoz Ledo, Arturo Moya Villen (October 10, 18:00h)
“Umbra-L” is an interactive audiovisual installation that proposes a common, ludic and participative reflection upon the identity, as a negotiation with the other. The participant is invited to use his/her shadow to build a alternative portrait of a society as a community, progressively based on the secret. Stories of anonymous bodies, free from the slavery and the persistence of his/her own image project a strong otherness inside the shadow. The micro-narrations realize the desire of being another within this outline.
