With the site-specific sound installation TEMPORAL TENSION, I address both boundless physical expansion, by using the audible to expand the visual representation and the directionless speed of temporal processes. Body fragments in the form of a whispering voice are transmitted to the public space through body sound transducers on the window. The whispering voice, processed by granular synthesis, eludes clear classification by speech recognition technologies and evokes a feeling of closeness and security. Through granular fragmentation the temporal linearity gets disrupted and centers the listener in the very moment of passing by.
TEMPORAL TENSION has been developed for the group show BODY CARE curated by Madelein Freund.
