Leslie García and Paloma López (Mexico) for TodaysArt


















New guests arrive on July 20th: Leslie García and Paloma López for TodaysArt!
Interspecifcs is focused on the relationship between waveforms, living matter and the way in which sound frequencies affect and create physical forms. The project seeks for a pattern-based understanding of our context in order to illustrate the underlying order in the physical universe and human consciousness that appears to be intimately related to sound.

Three-city residency
We are more than pleased to welcome Leslie García and Paloma López to The Hague for their ECAS residency at TodaysArt. After being hosted by Cimatics in Brussels, the Mexican duo landed in The Hague for the next two weeks before taking off to Tromsø where they will be hosted by Insomnia Festival. During the three-city residency, they will be working on their 'Interspecifics' project. 'Interspecifics' focuses on the relationship between waveforms, living matters and the way in which electromagnetic phenomena can be used to create a sonification (frequency) and visualization (cymatics).

The process of this research can be followed at
