ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2015:
Dive by Jana Winderen
THURSDAY 4 JUNE
KL. 20:00 (exact start time)
Internationally acclaimed artist Jana Winderen researches hidden depths with cutting-edge audio technology. With her probing hydrophones the audio topography of the oceans - sounds made by crustaceans, fish and mammals, the substrata of the sea ice and the depth of ice crevasses - are brought to the surface.
At the festival opening Winderen will present a version of the sound installation Dive (2014), originally commissioned for Park Avenue Tunnel, by New York Department of Transportation.
Jana Winderen is an artist educated in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London, and with a background in mathematics, chemistry and fish ecology from the University in Oslo.
Winderen researches the hidden depths with the latest technology; her work reveals the complexity and strangeness of the unseen world beneath. She is concerned with finding and revealing sounds from hidden sources, both inaudible for the human senses and sounds from places and creatures difficult to access.
