Lise Kjaer , mailart sound work, sent from New York

New York artist and art lecturer  Lise Kjaer, created a mailart project – multiple copies of a soundscape was posted out world wide to mark Rememeber Nature. The sounds are of Black Guillemots, Terns and Seagulls recorded during a recent residency on the island of Hirshholmen, Denmark.

“I like the idea of receiving a “gift,” putting the cd in the computer, and receiving no image (we are so bombarded with images these days and expect them to pop up on the screen), but a sound of birds, overpowering and active coming out of the speakers. Hopefully transporting someone out of their office environment and back to nature, memories of experiences in nature etc. Since the recordings were from a residency in Denmark, they were also my memories of the place.”

In the shop window of “DepInterdep” they installed a sun-operated work using the title ‘Remember Nature’ cut out from paper.

“Once this covering page has been removed the rest of the dark paper will be bleached, thus at some point gaining the same hue as the letters, leaving no trace of the work. Though this part of our contribution is minimal, it also has the smallest carbon footprint”.
