Apocryphal Book of a Cat and a Hunter´s Rewards

This “Book” tells a story about the relationship between a man a cat called Hypocenter. The man collects rewards that his lovely cat has brought him; the man is a hunter too, so he collects his own rewards and put them in a container next to each other’s. This is a small text build for a mini sound sculptures that introduce the monsters and tells stories very strong related to these rewards. The project has a few ways to be seen: as an audiovisual performance, installation, mini pieces or “interactive” book. 

Yair’s residency is part of Seeing Hearing UK Mexico, a three-year collaboration between the UK and Mexico made possible with the support of Anglo Arts, the cultural department of The Anglo Mexican Foundation A.C.; British Council Mexico; CMMAS (Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras) and Cryptic
