Artist in Residence Program MQ Wien
Feb. 2006 Tonspur - Passage
During my stay, I composed a sound installation piece, which later installed in one passage of courtyard. Since the work was aimed for public space, I first examined the sounds in MQ and different sites in the city.
The location of the MQ helped me collect sounds and impressions of the city quickly,
also it helped to observe the changes in the courtyard through two weeks.
These elements are woven into my composition, so that the piece and the actual sounds fuse into one. It was great opportunity to present my work in public space.
I appreciate meeting interesting artists living in Vienna. These meetings later brought a wonderful surprise performance
by yukonexus 6 (a Japanese artist) inside my installation at the first presentation of Tonspur �� Passage in May 2006.
Many thanks to the MQ team, and to Mr. Weckwerth and Mr. Szely for invitation.
