In Search of Equilibrium
This is an exploration of a way to capture the difficulties in addressing the causes and effects of climate change. In the meeting with climate modellers the realization grew of how complex the relationships are that climate models need to handle, especially if they are to include human behaviour. In this sound art work the focus is on how we experience the consequences of our actions and a search for equilibrium.
In Search of Equilibrium is a sound space marked by four speakers, one in each corner. Each speaker gives a specific sound that is part of our everyday environment. All four sounds can be relaxing and pleasant, but when intensified may turn stressful or even wicked. It is an art piece about longing and the difficulty of finding a balance in which we are able to subsist.
