See-through – A purposefully purposeless sculpting of space and time – is a production, performance by dancer/performer Adriana Cubides to which I have done live-sound composition and sound design for the film with the same name.

Adriana Cubides statement:
The practice behind the work See-through was developed during the pandemic responding to questions around liveness, countering an in-real-life and a virtual presence that merge into the format of a film-performance or what I call an embodied real-time cinema.
See-through is thought as a work that is reformulated for each space and context it is shown in, becoming a unique output every time. It also has the potential of being shared in different formats that are suitable for the context and spaces.
At the core lies the question of how to see differently and relate to the surrounding beyond socially assumed perceptions of function and purpose. I propose a dialogue between body, space, media, sound and gaze in which mirrors, screens, cameras, projectors, and light, become means to suspend and shift normative and familiarized perspectives and displace assumptions of reality.
I invite into multiple perspectives. The work with scale, framing, deconstructing overlapping, and superimposing perspectives, support me in bringing performative approaches, realities, and temporalities into one another, and by that expand the borders of singular contexts.
I aim at escaping identification and find new understandings through in-between spaces and de-centralized perspectives. What is revealed, hidden, back or foregrounded, opens a suggestive space beyond the image that is being produced, voicing a non-graspable presence of what lies underneath or in between things.
In resistance to traditional value systems within product-oriented thinking, I place my attention onto a process of becoming. Through a sensorial attention of care, I attempt to make an embodied way of seeing more tangible.
