Storeroom

Sound & Visual Installation, Namwon Sound Art Residency, 2018

During our short stay in Namwon, we were charmed by her silent pace of living and yearned to find her voice. Sounds seem to be the missing words and language of daily living that are wilfully discarded from our awareness. In hope of hearing something more than noise, we embarked on an adventure around the City of Namwon, collecting its sounds and documenting the places where they were born.

Storeroom was inspired by an unused room of the Old Korean Broadcast Station as a storage space for the neglected sounds of life in Namwon. We found this room with plenty of useless and abandoned objects swept underneath the floorboards, revealing the works of a lazy cleaner.. or perhaps one who loves to hoard? Here we find that these sounds could belong and not be swept away by our consciousness.
