The exhibition explores the sensuality of healing/wellness interfaces and objects. The installation simulates a healing space with highly sensualized objects, and stages an immersive experience of soothing spoken word and meditative vocal utterances. The objects allow the visitors to rest on them and hug them, and immerse themselves in sonic and vocal resonances. Inspired by the idea of a post-work society and the rising concern for emotional wellbeing, the exhibition is a space of experimentation with visual, sonic and spacial design elements.
The effect of voice on human consciousness is curiously explored through instructional and poetic language, which stages the voice as the vessel for empathy, compassion and healing. The vocal experimentations mark transitions from ego consciousness to inner self, as language transitions into sound, and cognitive knowledge into intuitive/bodily knowledge.
The works (objects, visuals and the performance) open up transcendental and spiritual aspects of the digitally mediated world, where design solutions for emotional healing and wellness, influence the overall emotional climate of our culture. The voices permeating the exhibition space, create a reflection of the inner self and the unraveling of the mind over our digital time-lines.
Digital dawn, luminous voices – performance opening on the 20th of April – is an immersive sonic experience guiding the audience through a visualization of the future. In the light of eternal youth, happiness and achieving the quest for the divine, the performers voices guide us towards intuitive and telepathic being, and a conscious revival of alchemic world view and mimetic existence, in which all realities become sensual, empathic and soothing.
Performance is created in collaboration with musician Jesse Perlstein, and vocalists Margje Ottevanger and Katja Maria Slotte.
