Soundwalk Collective JUNGLE-IZED
Opening for Miami Art Basel 2017 in the Miami Design District, the film is part of a multi-sensory art installation that will transport thousands of visitors daily to the heart of the Amazon. This immersive installation includes a participatory audio experience and an interactive video to encourage a conversation with nature and to heighten awareness of the environmental impact of climate change.
Shot in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, it reveals the invisible energy source that exists in the animals, in the air, in the trees, in the voices of the tribal inhabitants of the Amazon. It references the idea of provoking memory triggers and flashbacks to a previous time and place, when Nature was here among us. It explores the notion of longing for our lost environment and what was once our human landscape. By enabling the negative function on their mobile phones and pointing their cameras at the screen, viewers are be able to reveal the positive version of the film, and symbolically make a step forward in bringing back the positive in our conversation with Nature, turn the invisible back to visible.
