Zeno van den Broek presents his latest installation Panauditum at the Senses Working Overtime exhibition during the Gaudeamus festival.
Panauditum is a installation based on the role of sound in our modern surveillance society. We are very aware of the value and strength of our appearance and image but less aware of how valuable and personal the sound we produce is. Panauditum, a resonating wall-mounted sculpture consisting of nine planes, works with the unconsciously distributed sounds by visitors to the exhibition Senses Working Overtime, building an evolving composition of speech combined with pre-recorded electromagnetic artefacts of communication devices.
Senses Working Overtime is an exposition where the audience becomes the performer. Your role as an active participant is essential; merely looking and listening no longer suffices. As the audience you are immersed in a sensory experience or you act in an interactive installation in which you initiate and manipulate the performance yourself. By creating an experience, by letting you smell, taste and feel, your ratio is ignored and your subconscious is activated directly. You are the performer and the spectacle, all at the same time. Young artists and creators from various disciplines integrate new technologies with elements from the performing arts. We challenge you to surrender yourself to this cabinet of performative installations and sensory performances!
