EAVESDROPS

YEAR: 2016
MATERIALS: laser microphones, electronic circuitry, loudspeakers, stands, wire
MEASURES: 5 m x 3 m x 1,5 m
EXHIBITION HISTORY: Spor Festival. Aarhus, Denmark. May 2016

Eavesdrops explore the interrelations between sound, bodies and memory.

Laser beams capture vibrations from window panes. At the exact point when the laser beam is translated into sound, it is irrelevant whether the sound comes from inside or outside. Left is not a single space, but x number of spaces with the emergence of a sensitive relationship between the feedback system and the people who occupy the space. Throughout the exhibition period the installation as performative environment explores memory as a relational and situational size.
