Akash Sharma, Snehal Thomas
Curated by Shazeb Shaikh
Venue: FUNDAÇÃO ORIENTE, PANJIM
Time: 10:30 – 20:00
Sound measures space and makes it comprehensible
We stroke the boundaries of space with our ears.
An alternative exploration of Goan history and heritage, a backdoor where the past presents itself, not as historical data or art, but as an experience. Over time, all enduring historical spaces recorded in various media will witness losses of context and content. At the outer edges of this information loss is acoustic data. This installation, based on conserving Goa’s heritage through sound, is produced through extraction of its acoustic data that has endured through time.
Presenting a live experience that recreates the acoustics of several Goan architectural and heritage landmarks, the installation requires you to move through historical spaces and engage with these distinct acoustic environments. Set in the spaces of Fundacao Oriente located in Fontainhas, a heritage belt in the city of Panjim, architectural history in the form of sound will be recreated for the public with a special audio-mapping process.
