sound installation/10:40‘/2020-2021

In „refelctions“ two speakers simulate the two ends of a tunnel, the space in between becomes a passage. A single voice is negotiating the „je“ and „moi“ of the Lacanian mirror state in a self-reciprocating manner. These two words were spoken at the opposite ends of a former railway tunnel with a concise echo, which is used for screaming therapy by the nearby psychosomatic center. The words are becoming sounds used for the systematic “acustic tapping” of the empty space and its natural reverb. These sounds were played back and recorded again in a disused industrial tunnels – every location adding another layer of resonance. The site-specific echo effect achieved in this way spatialises the sound and transforms it into an object.
