Little revolutions for an old mill The viewers lie in a vat from the mill. A speaker hangs from a long cable and is set into a swinging motion as an atmospheric sound score passes back and forth just over the viewers body in the space hovering above.
Elaine Buckholtz’s work explores the medium of light as both an ephemeral phenomenon and as an intervention to unmask hidden aspects of architectural forms and landscapes. She is interested in poetic renderings that infuse space with image and light.
Floor Vahn’s sound installations traverse new media, engage with composition, gesture to sound/image mappings, synthesis techniques and collaborative improvisation.
The sound is at once luring then disquieting. There is a dim blue light cast in the wooden room and against the far wall a perforated disc of clean white light is spinning in a lulling motion producing a calming effect along the walls of the silo. As the speaker comes to a slowing halt, the next viewer enters the space and lies down to experience the audio-visual score.
Uplook is a timed-based performance piece that upends the space and allows participants a studied and meditative view of the ceiling of The Kulturmollan. Using sound, light and a fractured narrative, the viewers are transported through the space on a reclined platform, with Benney serving as an absurdist tour guide.
