What Survives

WHAT SURVIVES: SONIC RESIDUES IN BREATHING BUILDINGS

March 2006 at The Performance Space ~ Curator, Gail Priest.

Consisting of three major gallery-based sound installations and a program of commissioned works for two sound stations in the building, What Survives explores the real and imagined remnants of human presence in architecture.

The structures we build bear silent witness to human behaviour—what have the walls, beams and girders absorbed and what sonic secrets can be coaxed back out of them? Does this ephemeral material influence the energy of the spaces we inhabit? Taking inspiration from Rilke, What Survives conveys the indestructibility of energy and its subsequent transformations and manifestations.
