To Organize (2015)
Tomrom: group exhibition at Sandefjord Kunstforening. Curated by Maria Veie
09.05.15 – 08.06.15. Site specific soundinstallation.
To Organize is a site-specific sound installation shown at TOMROM: Sandefjord Kunstforening 09.05.15 – 07.06.15. The piece was shown outside next to Sandefjord City Hall and Sandefjords main park: “Badeparken”. The location functions as a walkway to the towns main hotel. The work is based on contact microphone recordings of movements in the parks trees, exploring hidden sound. Some of the recordings have been modified others left almost untouched. The material is then played back through sound transducers mounted to a cut local black alder. This way the acoustic properties of the split tree stem contribute to shape the sound. The soundmaterial is triggered by a certain degree of randomness. This way the soundwork keeps changing. To Organize is the second piece in an ongoing series of works (Treverk) that started in 2010, based on sound recordings of miniscule movements in trees. Link to the Tomrom catalog.
