Listening / Meidling

Nina Jukić (HR)

Binaural microphones placed in my ears record sound for as long as the camera simultaneously captures light. On the resulting printed photographs one sees me only from the back, sitting in different locations of my neighborhood, listening to the city. Due to the long exposure, moving people and vehicles have disappeared from the images. However, when visitors put the headphones on, they hear the exact soundscape I was listening to while the photo was taken, hearing also those things that became invisible due to the passing of time. I, on the contrary, remain visible, but inaudible.
