THE ZONE by Volumetric Units
Sound Installation, 2020
"THE ZONE" is a piece that raises the question of the invasion, imposition and expansion of technology in modern day life. Technology is imposed on man, but it is controlled by him, even subconsciously. The visitor enters the "zone" and experiences a situation of action-reaction in between him and an unfamiliar sound environment, where the flow of sound information depends on his interaction with space. The project invokes a sense of confusion of temporality. The space becomes a perpetually elusive present moment/situation, a glance to the hallucinatory dreamlike aspect of time where the visitor experiences the consequences of his actions.
