On March 3rd, Marsèlleria opened a new projects space in New York with an inaugural show by Italian artist Matteo Nasini.
Titled “Sparkling Matter“, the exhibition is the result of Nasini’s research in between sound, technologies and neuroscience to scan and transform into sound and substance the brain waves radiated while dreaming.
The performance lasting a whole night is an experiment on sound shapes and sleep, consisting in the live transformation of a sleeping person’s cerebral activity into sound. The harmonies generated by the sleeper will change depending on the phases of sleep and dreams.
The exhibition will also feature 3d printed porcelain sculptures realized using REM phases recordings’ datas and artist’s custom made blankets.
