Passing through nature to eternity

(Or raining underwater)
_

A site-specific sound installation with eleven non-visible speakers distributed throughout the space of the church. Made with different underwater recordings of rain from several locations like Rincón de la Vieja (Costa Rica), Yasuni National Park in the Amazon rainforest (Ecuador), some swamps of Bilbao, San Sebastián and Barcelona (Spain) and Saint-Jean-de-Luz (France).

GERTRUDE: All that lives must die, passing through nature to eternity.
HAMLET: Ay, madam, it is common.
GERTRUDE: It happens all the time, what lives must die eventually, passing to eternity.
HAMLET: Yes, mother, it happens all the time.
