Description:
Timo Kahlen FOOTPRINT #3, 2014-17 sound installation: sound miniature (01:02 min, stereo) and photograph Synopsis of sound miniature: "The bristle surface beneath our feet opening, breaking and tearing apart, as waves and water and debris rush into the instable vessel. Resolute and full of life: the protagonist, vehemently gurgling water and inarticulate sound. Possible meanings concealed (withheld), contained and spluttering, gurgling inside and out." Sound attached in a seperate e-mail to team@universal-sea.org as an .mp3 file. (No possibility in application form). Sound miniature to be presented as a loop - with intervals of several seconds - from two small stereo loudspeakers (focussing at ear level in the exhibition space). Or - as an alternative for intimate listening - on a single quality stereo headphone suspended from the ceiling. The sound miniature is to be displayed in conjunction with a single photographic still image to be displayed 'floating', mounted as a gallery print (aludibond and acrylic, frameless, ca. 40 x 50 cm; mounted with a distance of a few centimetres to a selected wall of the gallery) at eye level, directly in view of the loudspeaker/headphone installation of the sound in the exhibition space.
