Abstract

This installation is in response to a passage in Juhani Pallasmaa’s book The Eyes of the Skin. Pallasmaa develops the idea of sound's inherent ability to conjure within the mind an entire city through a snapshot of aural experience: ‘Anyone who has half-woken up to the sound of a train or an ambulance in a nocturnal city, and through his/her sleep experienced the space of the city with its countless inhabitants scattered within its structures, knows the power of sound over the imagination; the nocturnal sound is a reminder of human solitude and mortality, and it makes one conscious of the entire slumbering city’. (Pallasmaa, 2005)
