VISIOPHONE

UMBRA Maia

UMBRA is a series of site specific audiovisual installations focused on the visual exploration of classified trees by merging analogue illustration and digital video projection.

The purpose of this project is to catalog the classified tree specimens of each city and to communicate them through artistic installations, creating a bridge between visitors and these beings who inhabit our cities silently.

At the same time, a catalog is presented to the visitors with the creative process, including scientific data, illustrations, maps and samples that allow the user a more complete approach to the creative process and the selected tree species.

By Rodrigo Carvalho + Ana Duarte
