drifting Trace is an interactive walkway that uses onset and motion detection to play and decay unique sounds for each person as they walk, solitary, through the space.
I am interested in the process of the body moving and how the experience of this may be heightened. Daily life is often full of auto pilot mode, away from the totality of flesh, bones and awareness; a recurring loop of a blind spot, ironically symptomatic of what Berendt calls “eye culture”.
drifting Trace is a non directional instruction to move, to create a unique sonic footprint and, referencing Pauline Oliveros, to deep listen.
