‘blank’: Space #1

‘blank’: Space #1 (2015)
Collaboration with Aski Dahl
Sound work in a darkened gallery space
Galleriet, UmeƄ Academy of Fine Arts (SE)

This sound piece was created for an almost completely dark space that people enter with the soundscape in their headphones. The work, originally about 16 min long, was looped for an hour and composed to indicate an erasure of the given space of the gallery and stretch out as a landscape, impossible to fixate size-wise.
In the darkness, through sounds of movement, the listeners were lead to relate to the possible surroundings through audible observation solely. The darkness then contains certain ambiguity, which evokes a state of awareness.
