Scivias (Spring 2015) Lautaro Mantilla
Scivias is a one-day sound installation created by Lautaro Mantilla that explores concepts of community, free will, and social interaction, inspired by the work of Hildegard von Bingen, 12th c. writer, composer and mystic. Hildegard grew up enclosed in a monastery where she learned to read, write, meditate, pray, and compose. The installation will include a structure that is a creative interpretation of Hildegard’s room at the monastery, and five human-like objects that reflect her prismatic existence. Participants will be invited to create their own composition by interacting with the human objects, which respond to touch with light and sound. The installation will run throughout the day on Tuesday, April 28th in JH118.
