Tremor of People is a sound-video-narrative-action work that includes diverse moments of the process and development of the research on all those unfinished buildings in the periphery of Madrid and other cities.The work has his origin in a narrative impulse materialized as a typed instruction in 3 chapters. The idea was born during a research on architecture and crisis, eviction and other issues that emerges from the crisis of values. From this encounter between a never born architecture impacted against human corporal energy materialized in vibrations, emerges a kind of figure that reveals the real state of forces between a system (as architecture, structures) and human power (shout, step, kick, hit). The action was performed in Ensanche de Vallecas (Madrid) during January 2013. 12 persons participated. The action was recorded with video; the sound was recorder with a contact microphone that collected the noise produced by the vibration of the materials.
The display of the elements exists as a precarious assembly with found materials, supports and media.
