Winter Jenssen‘s work currently focuses on the mechanics of sound and combines this with the visual. He finds this synthesis of sight and sound very provocative because sound seems to have a very different effect on perception. It can provide a particular kind of engagement that brings life to form and gives atmosphere to space. Sound, and the very way in which we experience it, has greatly changed within the last few decades, with the advent of digitalization and sound production techniques. We have a deeper understanding of how sound functions and have pushed it into further realms of abstraction that were not previously possible, realms that exploit the unconscious. Sounds without recognizable form provide openness within visual interpretation by blending the lines between the known and the unknown.
SoundWalk is on October 5th, 2013. RSVP on Facebook. This will be the 10th and final annual event.
