Irena Pivka and Brane Zorman, cofounders at Cona (pronounced ‘Zona’) institute in Ljubljana, and shortlisted for the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards for their work Sandbox, discuss Sound walks as contemporary art practice: possible ways of listening and sound integration of space and time.
Irena and Brane see walking as the principle of an analogue tuning of the mind, and movement, as a political act, used today – more than ever – to implicitly express our views on the evaluation of time. Going places on foot is a waste, yet simultaneously a gift of time. Claiming time to move while being one own’s metronome.
In this presentation and discussion, we will cover our latest performative works, which have connected us with walking, listening, and using locative media tools. These are works that are based on sound field recordings, and reflections on the social relations towards society and nature.
Through acoustic ecology, the authors want to highlight the perception of our environment, listening and walking as possible forms of artistic activity, which is extremely important in today’s dramatically changing state of social and cultural landscape.
