Microphone, clock, software.
Installation by Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec
Installation Unheard consists of a microphone, a clock and a custom made software that resets the clock to zero every time it detects a sudden peak in loudness of the sonic ambiance of the place where it is installed.
Listening to the ambient sound and displaying the passing of clocked time between occurring auditory events, the installation articulates the relation between the measured time and the time as it is being experienced.
This setting invites the visitors to focus on listening along and to explore their own margins of hearing and attention, while it is suggesting a shadow temporality unfolding in the intertwining zone between the representation and the experience of the passing of time.
