El Aire Me Habla de Ti intermingles electronic artifice with natural phenomena to create a sound environment that tells the cruel truth of the 12- year series of murders of women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. A custom Max/MSP application is literally and figuratively used to harness the winds of Ciudad Juarez and to link the physical terrain of that city with the conceptual terrain of the installation space in real time.
Upon entering the installation space visitors find a small table holding a television monitor. There is a chair situated in the space as if someone had been recently seated at the table watching the monitor. The television monitor shows a digital video of a womans walk through a Juarez neighborhood, past crosses marking the death of others like her, to her workplace. The sounds of a womans voice detailing the circumstances of each documented murder moves around the room across 5 channels. Using custom software, online weather data is downloaded, analyzed, and used to control the speed and direction of the sound in the room.
