An installation by Jana Winderen and MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY
On the occasion of the launch of the World Wide Storefront / wwstorefront.org /
Reflecting on the contemporary conditions emerging between the digital and the physical realms, the collaboration of Winderen and Fornes collapses sound, light and form in an object with intrinsic sensorial behaviors, inviting visitors to question the properties of matter and the built environment surrounding us.
The installation is a vibrating sound experiment that aims to transform the architecture into animated sensible form.
Conceived as a sound object that absorbs and contrasts the site specificity of the Storefront Gallery with abstract, spatial, formal and acoustic variations and compositions, Situation NY raises questions about context, sensorial readings, estrangement and the uncanny tangentially resonating with contemporary debates around the ontology of objects.
