SILENT INHABITANTS

Silent Inhabitants is an audiovisual exploration focused on classified trees specimens from the city of Porto.
These trees, silent inhabitants , who have been living in our cities for dozens of years (some for hundreds) have witnessed key historical events and transformations in the city’s urban fabric.
.
The trees were digitally captured by photogrammetry techniques, then transformed in point clouds and used as catalyst for audiovisual exploration.
