In this special event, artist Ariel Guzik, who is representing Mexico in the 2013 Venice Biennale, presents his long-term project communicating with whales and dolphins (cetaceans). Environmental scientist and campaigner Mark Peter Simmonds OBE discusses the role of sound in cetacean society and the impact of sonar and noise pollution.
Ariel Guzik is an artist, musician and inventor. He designs and makes resonance instruments, which are used to enable interaction between human beings and nature through sensation and emotion, and creates installations and performances. For the last ten years, Guzik has concentrated his efforts in searching for a way of communicating with cetaceans. With a group of collaborators, he has undertaken several expeditions to contact grey whales and bottlenose dolphins off the coast of Baja California. In 2007, Guzik completed the construction of the first prototype of an underwater capsule, Nereida, a musical instrument to interact with cetaceans. Guzik will make a presentation about his work with cetaceans, immediately following his visit to the North of Scotland to meet bottlenose dolphins in the Moray Firth, the research phase of a new project with The Arts Catalyst.

Ariel Guzik
Musician, researcher, artist, iridologist, herbalist and inventor, Guzik designs and produces mechanisms and instruments to enquire into the various languages of nature. He is the director of the Nature Expression and Resonance Research Laboratory in Mexico, which for over 25 years has freely explored the phenomena of resonance, mechanics, electricity, and magnetism as foundations for the invention of mechanisms that give voice to nature through music. His research work is the reflection of an intimate need to generate an atmosphere favorable to the enchantment of the world. He intends to preserve mysteries, rather than decipher them, favoring the perception of natural phenomena through the senses, fascination and fantasy. Installations and individual exhibitions of his work have been presented in national and international institutions. Guzik's new work Cordiox will be shown in the Mexican Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale.

MUSIC FOR PLANTS | Acoustic Installation by ARIEL GUZIK
Everyday from 10 am to 6 pm | November 6th to 30th Entrance free with ticket, valid pass or membership | Conservatory of Mexican Plants
Given the immense interest generated by this installation during the past September and October, and after its presentation at the Cervantino Festival in Guanajuato, we are indeed fortunate to have it return to El Charco for the month of November. We thank Ariel Guzik and his team for allowing us to share this incredible experience of approaching nature through the senses once again.
The Plasmath Lute is a chord instrument based on traditional lute techniques. Its nucleus is formed of chords and precious woods that vibrate through the capture of signals coming from living things. This provokes resonance in the chords and wood of the instrument, generating songs.
Ariel Guzik, Mexican artist and inventor, is founder of the Laboratory for Research in Resonance and Expression of Nature (Laboratorio de Investigacion en Resonancia y Expresion de la Naturaleza A.C.) whose mission is the creation of an empathetic language, universal and direct, between human beings and their environment, looking to wake up in the collective consciousness a profound emotional understanding of nature. The artistic projects of this Lab give free exercise to the human spirit that looks to resolve enigmas and mysteries through sensation and emotion. To this end, Ariel Guzik has constructed a family of instruments which are like sculptures, capable of relating through links with energy and vibrations of various natural phenomenon.

"Music for Plants" by Ariel Guzik, a Mexican artist and inventor, is a one-piece installation recently on view at El Charco del Ingenio, an extensive botanical garden in the Sierra Madre.
...
In his piece, Ariel Guzik, the founder of the Laboratory for Research in Resonance and Expression of Nature, features the central "performer" plant connected through a network of roots to electrodes inserted like acupuncture needles. The smaller surrounding cacti play a role as emitters to the lute. What I couldn't see was the amplifier under the fabric.
Guzik's mission is to create "an empathetic language, universal and direct, between human beings and their environment …to wake up in the collective consciousness a profound emotional understanding of nature. The effect of the subtle sounds conveyed was certainly haunting.
In his title, "Music for Plants" one might notice the term "for" and not "from" plants. Intrigued, I suddenly recalled my first experience upon hearing dolphins and whales communicating in recordings by Paul Winter back in the 1970's. Here, in the Conservatory, we are also being asked to consider that plants might communicate through sound. Guzik calls the surrounding ones in the Conservatory "ambassadors".
...
Today, we have Ariel Guzik further inviting us into this vast world that explores the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and other plants, and, by extension, plants and animals such as humans.

Juan José Díaz Infante's Ulises is a nanosatellite being launched soon next year, conceptualised and developed by a Mexican group of artists during the past year: The Mexican Space Collective. Ulises is born out of the necessity of creation of parallel and alternate reality, explores the need of any citizen on Earth to be able to shape any future he wants not being dependant on the system.
