"Hearing with the Eyes" explores the interaction that arises from the combination and contrast between digital and analog photography.
Moving images versus static recordings, abstract shapes and landscapes in the appearance of synchronized sounds.
An installation with projections of abstract film sequences, constructed from analogue recordings on transparent digital photographs of mountain landscapes.
The installation by Ruxandra Mitache is enhanced by the digital sounds of Pierre Ajavon added and creates an atmosphere of abstract emotional experience.

An installation with projections of abstract moving images constructed from analog photography frames on transparent digital photographs of mountains, accompanied by specific sounds creating an atmosphere of abstract emotional experiences.
Hearing with the Eyes connects the traditional and modern mediums, translated in a constant rhythmic motions, black and white abstract shapes playing a hypnotic visual game before our eyes, the images reminding about memory and the passage of time.

The plexiglass light object is especially created in this form, the juxtaposition of the three mountains is a conceptual study into the generous constellation of the photographic medium. I wanted them exposed like in a moving image sequence, the transparent layers of the printed images are silently moving between the constancy, firmness and stillness of this particular symbol of the mountain.
The photograms are emotional light projections, like a spherical sound, they are particularly printed with a specific vibration of light, sequential movements and experimental time exposures.
I think of poetry as a territory for sharing. I added the practice of writing to my work, and I began with small poems, I usually prefer to write experimental things. I found that writing helps me to imagine and construct the form of the movie or project that I want to start working on. The minimalistic touch of words is so colorful to me, with so many nuances. Writing poetry is very similar to writing music, the words are important fluids, transparent worlds of consciousness.
