About this exposition

We live in an era of pervasive mobility and (dis)connectivity that triggers perpetual dislocation, where perceptions constantly shift across places to form unsettled geographies, producing meanings that at times are arguably independent from the locative sources. As increasingly migratory being, a wandering urban dweller of today's post-global cities is sensitive to environmental sounds navigating through various urban sites considering them as spatio-temporally evolving but gradually disorienting auditory situations, juxtaposed with real-time spatial information, and memory of another place in another time. The nomadic subject relates to these situations through contemplation, mindfulness and contingent processes informed by the enhanced sense of mobility. ‘Exile and Other Syndromes’ (2015 – 2016) responds to this indisposition of migration, placeless-ness and nomadism – impulses of a contemporary condition that eventually blurs the boundaries between the digital and the corporeal, between local and the global, or between private and enhanced access and freedom of the public domain, helping the nomadic subject to emerge as an elevated, emancipated self. The project intends to examine these contemporary realities manifesting in a responsive, augmented, and intelligent environment incorporating multi-channel sound diffusion, modulated text and audio data visualisation. The work considers mindful aspects of deterritorialized mode of listening, and explores its introspective capacity transcending the barrier of immediate meaning to touch the poetic sensibilities. The première of the working version will take place at CUBE, IEM: Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, Kunstuniversität Graz, 19:00, 19 January 2016.
