Return of the silurians – an improvisation between sound practice & visual practice
Lina Persson, Artist & Researcher in film
Jenny Sunesson, Artist & Assistant Professor of Sonic Practice
What are you investigating and why?
Return of the Silurians stages four different phases of resurgence, re-animation.
From dead petrified fossils to soft clay imprints, to animated clay. It investigates the Silurian coral reef organisms as humanity’s ancestors and potential future descendants. During a five hour long improvisation Persson and Sunesson experiments within this storyworld and by analysing layers of sediment and layers of sound they will together continue to build and expand it. Exposition in RC.
What will we experience during your presentation?
A five hour improvisation between two research practices; sound/fragmenturgy and image/re-animation. In a dark room Persson and Sunesson will gradually create a storyworld from sound and moving images through a dialogical dj:ing/vj:ing. Visitors can come and go, spend some time with the process anytime during these five hours.
