In-Site-Out is an in-situ aural installation that explores our perception of silences. By situating oneself in different modes of listening in relation to the space, this work intends to uncover where our aural awareness can bring us.
Within the context of listening, Silence has long been regarded as an unperceivable entity in our auditory experience due to the physical structure we inhabit. And yet, Silence is the soil of all sounds. In-Site-Out aims to bring out different layers of potential silences, from the embodied, the unconceivable to the imagined. These states of silence are concealed in sounds that were inaudible in nature. By situating one’s body in the multiplying acoustic spaces induced by its self-presence, one is invited to interact with the “inaudible” infra-structure of the site. What is silence is at once sounded; Be it a straight road or spiral.
