YAGIGA SEOUL, ARTELEGE VLADIVOSTOK
My time in Vladivostok was brief and busy as I developed an audio artwork about the city which was presented at Artetage – the museum of modern art. Building upon my interest in soundscapes as they relate to place, the work was principally comprised of recordings I had made of the city's many different soundscapes, and was diffused throughout the gallery through an array of concealed bluetooth speakers. At a conceptual level, it might be considered in relation to the history of landscape painting, or more overtly, that of documentary photography.
