Umwelten is piece inspired by the work of Jakob von Uexküll and his concept of umwelt which is the perceptual world in which an organism exists and acts as a subject. Each creature, from any tick to any human, evolves in its own world of perception, and each of them is different. What Uexküll describe is an infinity of idiosyncratic perceptual worlds.
This piece draws a slow journey trough these worlds, drifting from one umwelt to another, exploring the natural and artificial, exposing a variety of timbric spaces, inaudible micro-cells and sound morphologies.
