Place 1 and 2

( sound fragments and visuals will be posted soon )

Acousmatic sound composition, site-specific sound identity, 1-hour loop.

Architectural site-specific shapes copied and dropped to the floor, polished into the original floor paint as textural paintings.


Premiered in solo exhibition Sounding Matter at Galleri F15 2020


On the second floor of Gallery F15 there are two corner rooms, two corner stones. They spaces are similar, but have different temperatures, different acoustics and the windows have different views to the outside nature. Using small variations in sound composition and textural changes to the existing floor, the rooms are subtly turned from being a space to a place, from abstract space to a physically oriented place. A reorientation towards the building itself, to our body in relation to the body of the building. The installations explore the notion of time and traces of existence in time in relation to matter.
