During the three weeks I spent in the hills of Nizza Monferrato for UVA programme, I recorded different natural sounds (cicadas, wind, crickets, chickens, flies) that usually compose a common background soundscape of the private properties in the area. I modified them thinking they could take on a different, almost horrific value. I then designed six benches influenced by the imaginary of the hay bales, all cut and assembled without any kind of mechanical process.
