Nereida

Submersible capsule, 2004–2009

Nereida is a fused quartz underwater capsule that contains within it a mechanism of cords and circuits. It is part of a collection of instruments whose purpose is to establish contact and some kind of link with cetaceans through music, without any means of domination and without limiting their freedom. The Nereida experiments are based on some aspects of chaos theory and on the fact that for dolphins and whales, observation and communication make up a single and inseparable circular process based on sound waves.
