Sound and Space Research is an international artistic research platform that was initiated by artist Sandra Volny, Ph.D. It focuses on sound and aural spatial awareness through sound journeys, meditations, situations, testimonials and narratives that explore the tenuousness of silence and the resonance of listening areas.
Sound and Space Research invites visual artists, sound artists, musicians, poets, architects, dancers, performers, designers, anthropologists, wellness professionals to explore their practice through sound: its materiality and intangibility, its resonances and connection to the social and environmental context.
This research project aims to build collective experiences and knowledge based on sounding spaces through interdisciplinary artistic research and practices.
The act of listening to our space emerges from our body awareness: its posture, movement and breathing. What are the implications of listening consciously to our space? What can we see through sound? What can we imagine through sound?
Explore new avenues of the artist’s creative practice through daily activities such as action-performance, video art, creative writing, field recording and photography; Develop on-site experimental models to explore new environments; Share and build collective experience and knowledge on sound and space; Develop a personal project from experiments or personal practices in a limited time frame and new location; Exhibit the project in a professional gallery; Meet and network with participating international artists.
Participants are encouraged at the end of the field trip to exhibit, perform or lecture their production in the main gallery at the Ionion Centre for the Arts and Culture.
