Aura Satz: Sound Seam
Sound Seam, Aura Satz

Sound Seam, Aura Satz

Opening at the Wellcome Collection on 9 December Aura Satz’s new film Sound Seam continues the artists’ exploration into the material qualities of sound and vision.

Made while artist-in-residence at University College London’s Ear Institute, 2009-10, Satz was particularly drawn to the anatomy of hearing, along with past and present technological devices designed to enhance hearing through the amplification or reproduction of sound.

Creating an ethereal resonance between sound and vision, Sound Seam begins by enticing the viewer through the mouth of a series of gramophone horns, like a portal into another place and time. The film invokes the idea that every surface, in particular parts of our anatomy, is potentially inscribed with an unheard sound or echo of voices from the past.

You can see more of Aura Satz’s work at and watch APEngine’s interview with her here.
