is a project that works with the primal forms of sound and light, starting from a series of stills, excerpts from a video documentary filmed under the sea near the island of Tioman in Malysia. Francesco Cavaliere and Leila Hassan are during their live performance researching the lost reflection, which lies on the deep seabed. Using raw materials and textile surfaces, they transform multiple rays of light into a projection that changes shape organically and constantly. Sea Urchin is a vehicle of investigation that furthers their aim to explore a mirage of forms, as a bridge to an unreachable cosmos, or, equally an unexplored seabed.
