“M.M.M.M.” is an installation for the temporary exhibits room of the Puppet Museum of Porto.
“M.M.M.M.” was created by Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais, with the collaboration of Lia, and was inspired by the Puppet Theater of Porto and its museum. It evokes the movements and memories of the puppets exhibited, using sounds collected through the manipulation of puppets, sets and scenic objects. Five software modules and six speakers fill the room with sounds of the puppets and of the actors that bring them to life. The sole visual element of the installation is a visual projection, conceived by Lia, with graphic elements that suggest string puppets and that are stimulated by the sounds projected into the room.
