Site specific 6 channel audio installation with 5 digital prints on self adhesive vinyl.
1:05 min looped. Kyoto Art Center 2017
The sound of a rolling suitcase travels between six speakers, placed at the six ends of a ramp corridor going up through three floors.
When the sound begins in the lowest speaker it is slowed down enough to become a deep and powerful rumble. As it moves upstairs through the speakers it speeds up, and on the top floor it has become very fast. It then travels down again. The travel up and down again takes about one minute, and loopes endlessly. It travels slowly between speakers on the deep end, but the higher and faster it gets the faster it moves.
On the walls and ceilings of the ramp there were placed photographs of five different suitcases, made from a direct frontal angle. The objects filled the field of the photograph as much as possible, and the background was cut away. The height was the original height of the suitcases, but the length was stretched up to between 1.60 meters and 11 meters. The prints were made on self adhesive vinyl and mounted directly on the walls and ceilings.
The production was supported by the Danish Arts Foundation
