“Sound hoover”

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact

Abstract

I was commissioned to take part in Nord Art, the largest annual art event in northern Europe. In Nord Art 2010, 245 artists from 51 countries participated. My contribution was the sculpture Sound Hoover. It is a theoretical device to absorb the permanently growing sound levels that surrounds us. It was also referred to as sound pollution, particularly in city agglomerations. Within its exaggeration lies a romantic irony, which creates a tension between ideal and reality. As a machine it is completely useless, but it has a strong effect as an image and is a symbolic representation of one of humanity’s principal problems.
