Listening to the space under a demolished building

This performative field recording involved burying microphones within the remnants of a recently demolished building. Through the ear, then, nonhuman space is able to be transposed onto the body as the vibrations under the rubble becomes inhabited during the site's tectonic transformation.

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 has been turned inside out in an effort to conceal itself with its innards.
