Listening to the space between ashes
This performative field recording involved burying microphones within the remnants of a recently burned building. Using embedded microphones as a proxy for the body, the space between the ashes becomes amplified as the site hangs simultaneously from built and unbuilt foundations.
The work deals with relations between public and private space, as the legality of inhabiting the site is questionable, as well as the fact that the once enclosed space now exists in an altered state—as a layer of ashes on the ground.
