This short film reflects the diversity of sounds that surround the work of Cildo Meireles throughout the day at MACBA. The film highlights the similarities and differences between the sound environment of the Museum gallery and a public park. This exercise is related to the fact that another version of Inmensa (Immense),1982 by Meireles is located in a public park in Brumadinho, in the Brazilian region of Belo Horizonte.
