“La gravedad” revolves around the processes of construction and activation of contemporary space, and the role of media in theses processes. Halfway between a site-specific intervention and sound art, it’s an audio guide to be picked up at the festival’s Information Point that will drive to the visitor through the urban spaces of La Ràpita. The term space is considered not only as the physical surrounding but also a support for the human relations, in continuous mutation, where we can explore how individual identity develops itself.
