The acoustic life of silent objects

"Part social experiment, part sound exploration, and part guaranteed conceptual failure, Ed Osborn's Audio Recordings of Great Works of Art was initially intended to investigate the aural side of the museum experience with the expectation that recordings of the acoustic life of silent objects would reveal almost nothing about them. Except in the case of extremely popular art works where crowds gather noisily, this proved to be true."

Sam Renseiw proves himself adept here at sounding out this rarely navigated, nearly silent, and always invisible terrain, in the midst of H5n1, lurking. View how there is much more to sound and noise than can be picked up through microphones here or click on the artwork above. (patafilm 119b, 00'46'', 5.2 MB, mov/quicktime) relinked 02.10.15
