element from a collaborative piece with maya dunietz within her show "root of two"
@ bemis art center, omaha, nebraska
team : michael larsen
this installation is part of a series exploring the soothing effects of surround white noise under different forms : dripping water (rain), fans, electric hum.
these works combine a physical shelter with a « sound bubble ». the experience for the visitor is one of deep relief and calm, white noise behaving as a shield protecting from the outside world.
this research started as workshops in psychiatric hospitals in france, trying to figure out sound alternatives to medication. it is based on the work of psychiatric nurse and noise musician vivian grezzini, and later developed with brutpop art collective and antoine capet.
