Mika Vainio. Sondear

Sondear, 2001. Sound installation by Mika Vainio

Sondear, 2001, is a sound installation by Mika Vainio (Helsinki, 1963-Trouville-sur-Mer, 2017) which records in real time the urban environment through the vibrations of Antoni Tàpies’s sculpture Núvol i cadira (Cloud and Chair, 1990). The sound signals are converted into graphics using an analog oscilloscope, the electronic measuring instrument that is part of the installation. Sondear was created in 2001 for the exhibition Architectures of Discourse, curated by Ute Meta Bauer, which took place at the Fundació in 2001.

Dates: from June 1 to September 11, 2022. | Set up by Rikke Lundgreen and Nunsys. | The re-installation of this work is part of the Engagement project.
