Mine in Motion

The Nyköpings mine at Utö is 215 meter deep, filled with water that in 1879 took over and mining was seized. In this vast void hides a memory which I aspired to reveal in sound and visual means.

As the water vibrates according to the sounds of mining and industry, the mine becomes an embodiment of times, portraying a memory of the space in sound.

Sound is an element that connects us to our immediate environment. The sounds we are surrounded with are an expression of current values of culture. Through memory we embody the sounds we experience.

Material and method: Sound, water, neoprene and steel
Exhibition: Konstfack, Stockholm, August 2014
