Montréal, le 11 juin 2021 – Montréal, June 11, 2021 – perte de signal open its laboratory to the public to present Mythic Landscape , an installation by the colombian artist Laura Criollo Carrillo.


The artist will present her installation during a live presentation of her work, hosted by the sound artist Gabrielle Harnois Blouin, that will be broadcasted on our Facebook and Twitch page on Tuesday, June 15, at 2.30 p.m.

Mythic Landscape is an interactive installation that leads the spectator to reflect on the perception and the representation of imperceptible phenomena for the human senses.
The installation is composed of infrared lights, invisible to the human eye, and artificial electromagnetic fields emitting inaudible sounds to the human ears. By using special devices, the spectator is able to see the invisible and hear the inaudible phenomena happening in real time in space. The spectators have the possibility to experience two different spaces at the same time: one completely silent and dark according to their senses, and another full of light and sound revealed by the devices.

Mythic Landscape emerges in the confrontation between the sensory and cognitive limitations of human beings and their (sometimes excessive) need to know and determine their physical world through a logical and tangible definition. This project particularly explores the role of technology as an efficient mechanism to create these sensitive representations of the undetectable.
