About the Piece
Matmo comes from the words “materialism” and “monster.” This piece talks about how the air body, space and objects interact and transform, as well as their sound; if it is true that all aspects of the mind are the result of material interactions, in what do the objects and spaces with which we interact? The illusion becomes a focal point as that gift that we humans have to believe in what is not visible but that somehow helps us to stay alive.
