Noesis

NOESIS

2019

¬†The dog next door is barking. My window in 129 is broken, whomever it belonged to before me, they’ve tied a bright orange string on it to fix it. This string has become an essential part of calling it my atelier.

Noesis is a site-specific project researching human correlations with inhabited space. Strong ties to space in terms of shelter-building are nothing new in the history of human behaviour, but what happens when we are only a passer-by? How do we imprint ourselves in a building which, gradually, transforms inhabited space in an entity of its own? We create a place out of space through our interaction with it. The building grows beyond itself, and we become an inseparable part of its history.

The installation is a sound map of TAC building, constructed from recorded noises all around the premises. The experience of a soundscape presents a unique portrait of space; it is a map, a documentation and identification.

Two part exhibition was realized in scope of Artist in Residence (July – December 2019) in Temporary Art Center (Eindhoven, NL).
