THE SOUND OF THE HOLLOW SPACE

We perceive landscapes every day. We move and live in them. We differentiate between rural and urban landscapes. Architecture and infrastructure make up a large part of our environment.



But what about that part of the landscape that we cannot see? The forgotten landscapes of an earlier time?



As a former mining town, the city of Genk has created an entire system of an underground infrastructure - a system of tunnels, corridors and mine shafts.



Fascinated by geology and the layers of rock hidden beneath the surface of the earth, I wondered what a cross section of Genk with its mine tunnels could look like. And how it would sound, if this cross section was not made visible but audible. For this, I built a wooden resonating sound body as a first experiment.



The starting point for further research emerged to be: How can I map with sound?
