Arbola was inspired by the question of how to translate an outdoor space and its visual, tactile and aural facets into a crafted indoor environment.
The audience is invited to move through the performative installation, which houses and transmits distilled qualities of the outdoor space in an abstracted way. Reading’ and translating through movement, deconstructing and reconstructing were the main modes within my creative and compositional process.
