Earwitness

Angela de Weijer, infinity three: earwitness objects, 2014

IDEA: Infinite sound expands sonic perception.

WHAT: Three soundproof crates covered with acoustic foam on the inside, placed on wooden tables, separated by acoustic panels. Earwitness Objects is a guided listening experience, which creates a possibility space for infinite sound trough the disclosure of carefully selected sound absorbing objects to the public. A procedural performance provides an optimal environment to experience the sonic energy contained within objects.

WHY: Inspired by Marconi's conviction of the eternal perpetuation of sounds as vibrating bodies in the air, I have adopted the notion of infinite sound as a model to expand sonic perception.
