On Being ill | 2013 – 2014

On Being ill is a 40 minutes long sound and movement installation piece by TRi.Co performance group, applying a holographic projection screen and surround soundscape. The music was made of acoustic sound samples by using electronics. The subject of the piece is illness. It is an accompanyment into absence, with an eye on all the non-communicated content of illness.

“The narrative is a journey along the spine, embodiment of several conditions of illness, and where the illness is never an end point, a result to evaluate, merely a starting point. The project is a research of presence, and is directed to explore the possible mental and emotional states resulting of acute physical condition. “On Being Ill” is driving the attention to the content of certain conditions, releasing them from their dogmatic brackets of dictated value.”
