2x (90 x 40 x 30cm) Installation

 

Daan Duprez (B) & Eric Sijpestijn (NL)

 
Sono Oculus could be translated as „The Hearing Eye” and this is exactly what both artists are after with this work: to let your hearing produce a picture inside the mind. Both artist and composer thought about familiar and unfamiliar sounds that could have a relation with the colour black and the colour white and could provoke a visual impulse inside the consciousness of the participant. If a visual impulse should occur, the participant becomes the artwork. She or he is thereby the generator of totally unique and private images, emerging from a whole individual experience.
Both installations have their own headphones and there is a marking in front of the art from where you should stand. Once on position you are imbedded in either a total white or total black viewpoint. For both these works, 2 soundscapes have been composed and recorded by the musician and sonologist Eric Sijpestijn. The soundscapes are made of loops where there is no beginning and no ending. The unique recording technique is also giving the sounds a feel of presence into a dimensional space.
