Soil sounds 2


Sound kinetic objects respond to soil moisture conditions in their current location. The acquired data generate sound and create an audio acoustic environment. The installation takes into account the issue of environmental sustainability and at the same time combines it with media art and data sonification.

The concept deals with sonorous research based on the geological subsoil of a selected locality, and such an approach oscillates between scientific facts and the artistic grasp of reality. Through my own device, I collect digital data in nature, which I then turn into sound and transform them into a real audio acoustic environment in the country. It is in such an acoustic environment that the viewer has the opportunity to directly encounter data that are sonicated, but at the same time recording them in the form of raw data or sound recordings will serve as a map of soil conditions in specific places and will connect art, ecological issues and increase interest in their mutual connection.
