INSTALLATIONS AND SITE SPECIFICS

The Face Of The Rain - Selected for SAT FEST 2021, Montreal 

Performed and directed and edited by Marcella França.

The Face of the Rain” is a 360° full-dome immersive performance that talks about memory, the life cycle, and the concept of non-linear time through the realization that we are all born from water and become rain after our death. The artist Marcella França mixes contemporary dance and digital art, to offer a poetic experience about mourning. Her character tries to revive her father's presence interacting with the rain, and in this immersive emotional search, the artwork provokes the following questions:

- What is the face of the rain?

- Can the past and the present coexist in the same moment of life?

Mémoire Liquide, 2015

An artwork about the emotional values with water, linking North and South of the planet

How important you think it is the conservation of fresh water on the planet?

Can you explain your feeling on quenching your thirst or the pleasure of a plunge?

This video installation is about the past and the future, reflecting in a sensitive way about the importance of the fresh water.


The both points-of-view are condensed in the same cloud sculpture made with recycled plastic water bottles. At one side, the intangible value of the emotional memories in the aquatic environment forming a collaborative content from canadians and brazilians received by social media and projected on a sculpture. At the other side the live experience promoted by interactivity create new sensations in real time to build new reflections of the future of fresh water preservation, creating new fresh emocional memories with these unique experience.

 

How it works:
The Interactivity by gesture using Kinect offered live experience as if you could touch the water inside a cloud sculpture. At the same time, completing the 360º videomapping projection, on the other side of sculpture received the collaborative content of pictures and videos collected by social media about special moments lived in fresh water.
