two of many

 

Two of Many, commissioned by Frederic and Maria Coustols for Palacio Belmonte, is an audio-visual installation created in collaboration with dutch filmmaker Marja de Vries as an observation on historical perspective and understanding. Steeped in hundreds of years of history, the unique Palacio Belmonte in Lisbon was the centrepiece for this work - the work was filmed there, field recordings were recorded there and the work was premiered there in June 2015.
