Abstract(s)MaLaKuLa is an art installation to be discovered by people walking along the beach. It explores familiar nature elements in their natural context to build a poetical digital experience where the nature elements become interfaces for unexpected narratives. In this installation, curious spectators surprised by the sounds of two “magical” sea shells, explore them to find that they are being taken through a journey of mysterious soundscapes: the sounds of Malakula, telling stories of a lost island in the Pacific Ocean. The narrative takes the listener to an imaginary magical place where one hears the call of the spirits of the land and sea.
