Vibrail is a space in which the visitor will be able to experience the infra-sounds or frequencies issued by different trains in their step by the bridge of the Real Sociedad [iron bridge] of San Sebastian. Such frequencies, perceptible for our body but not for our ears, were registered by an electronic device created by the artist, which was including five sensors of movement connected to integrated circuits specially designed to such an effect. Vibrail, constructed in the former workshop of iron and wood of Arteleku, has been created thanks to the scholarship of artistic creation granted to the artist by Gipuzkoa’s Council.
Vibrail displayed the vibrations generated at the Real Sociedad’s bridge in San Sebastian, Spain. Those frequencies were registered by a device, created for that purpose, shaped as a glass foot, with motion sensors connected to electronic circuits. Once the data were registered, a cubical space similar to a tunnel was built, one side open, with enough room for one single person. The visitor walked over rail tracks that faded with the darkness, experiencing a subtle vibration in his body generated by the tracks. The audience felt the train passing under their feet without watching or listening to it. The experience evoked the journey inside a dark tunnel where the visitor leaves himself goes without knowing what is waiting for him inside. The visitor built his own experience based on how he managed his own relationship with the space and the different information his senses captured during his visit to the installation. Vibrail was an opportunity to spend some time isolated from the external noise, focusing our attention in our inner noise; a piece to move further from the external space looking into our inner nature.
