“M.M.M.M.” is an installation created by Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais, with the collaboration of Lia, for the temporary exhibits room of the Puppet Museum of Porto.
“M.M.M.M.” was inspired by the Puppet Theater of Porto and its museum. The installation evokes the movements and memories of the puppets exhibited, using sounds collected through the manipulation of puppets, sets and scenic objects. These sounds feed five software modules and speakers distributed by the room, filling it with the sounds of the puppets and of the actors that bring them to life.
The sole visual element of the installation is a visual projection, conceived by Austrian artist Lia, with graphic elements that suggest string puppets and are stimulated by the sounds projected into the room.
“M.M.M.M.” opens next Monday at 18h00 at the Museu das Marionetas do Porto. The museum celebrates its first anniversary with this installation and a with a brand new exhibition, “O Segredo das Flores”.
