Virus Diary

in collaboration with Dan Perjovschi

 

2020

16 Sound Objects, Drawings, recorded testimonies, Qr codes

16 objects of 50 x 50 cm

Curated by: Levente Kozma

technical assistance: Dorian Largen Schleich

Supported by Simultan Festival Timisoara

18 drawings by Dan Perjovschi are transduced in audio recordings and placed inside paper-sound objects. The Narrators, invited by Dan, offer an insight from a subjective view on the content of the drawings, describing various facets of our current world in relation to the pandemic.

Their voices carrying stories are visualised through 16 sound objects that act as loudspeakers. Simple, white sheets of paper transformed into membranes of resonance embody the recordings. On top, thin copper wires move gently steered by the voices. Each paper-speaker is placed next to a Qr code where the public can access the drawings.

 

The objects are placed 1,5m apart, at a safe distance.

 

Once enacted, the papers commence a multichannel sound composition, a choir of different words, languages, spoken testimonies that reflect upon our current word.
