Sound and Space Research is an international art research platform that was initiated by artist and independent researcher Sandra Volny, PhD. It focuses on sound and aural spatial awareness through sound journeys, meditations, situations, testimonials and narratives that explore the tenuousness of silence and the resonance of listening areas.
Sound and Space Research invites visual artists, sound artists, musicians, poets, architects, dancers, performers, designers, anthropologists, scientists, wellness professionals to explore their practice through sound: its materiality and intangibility, its resonances and connection to the social and environmental context.
This research project aims to build collective experiences and knowledge based on sounding spaces through interdisciplinary artistic research and practices.
The act of listening to our space emerges from our body awareness: its posture, movement and breathing. What are the implications of listening consciously to our space? What can we see through sound? What can we imagine through sound?
