Blind Box


2011 - Casa da Música_Porto


In an area steeped in darkness only sound exists.

Hearing becomes the unique guidance in a journey through the sounds of everyday life, strong or subtle, dry or soft, all so familiar that in the course of the day end up being ignored.

Awakening in a visual individual a careful hearing is the exercise that proposes the installation Blind Box.


Within this metal container, sonically isolated from the outside, the reality is made of sounds eared along paths made ​​by blind citizens.


After this auditory experience the listener are invited to envision the route of all these sounds in the foyer of the Casa da Música.
