Monólogo (Monologue, 2021) is the recording of a video call. Static images of ears painted by Hieronymus Bosch are watching each other in silence. At successive intervals, a frame shines around the one who will speak. A thunder echoes in the room. Silence again. Soundscapes of noisy communication.

Réseaux-Mondes elected top ten art exhibition of the year by ARTFORUM
"Réseaux-Mondes”—loosely translated as “Worlds of Networks”—was the fifth and latest iteration of “Mutations/Creations,” a long-term research project and interdisciplinary platform launched in 2017 by the Centre Pompidou and the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music. Much the same way that the Pompidou’s legendary 1985 exhibition “Les Immatériaux” juxtaposed Nam June Paik’s TV Buddha, 1974, with the most innovative computer technology of the time, “Réseaux-Mondes” integrated the interpretation and display of materials from various fields to critically investigate the place of networks in our societies."
