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.”
