Audio-recording, web-design, in collaboration with Yeliz Secerli

Installation, wood, epoxy resin, speakers, raspberry pie, 44 × 317 × 16 cm

End of the Year Show, Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem, 2018

Permanent installation at the entrance of the Werkplaats Typografie. It plays a series of recorded sounds embodying a personified sculpture: a loud and disruptive concierge. The two voices emitted are commenting on the trajectories of the bodies in space, poking and asking for attention, or questioning the audience about their role and condition. The installation refers both to civil sirens and the myth of sirènes (mermaids) — disturbing and luring navigators with their chants.
