Abstract

From the analysis of Poetry as an echological survival by sound artist Nuno da Luz, we reflect upon forms of environmental and echological involvement. This exhibition proposes a sensorial alternative to the critical discussion around Anthropocene narratives, answering some of the critics of this concept. Sound art plays an important role given its material characteristics and the fact that it complements the Western world-view, which privileges vision. The way the work of Nuno da Luz creates a being-in-the-world in which visitors are penetrated by sound waves proposes a redefinition of our ecological condition, hence creating an “echological survival.”
