[ISEA2014] Artist Statement: Frank Ekeberg – BIRDING THE FUTURE

Artist Statement

Birding the Future explores extinction rates through the warning abilities of birds. Pairing an outdoor sound installation with a stereoscopic image walk participants are guided through a journey of extinction.

  • Frank Ekeberg, NO, is an artist and researcher primarily concerned with the sonic arts. His work explores issues of ecology, time, space and memory. Using almost exclusively natural sound as source material, spatial aspects of the sounds and the listening environment are integrated as essential elements of the work. A composer by training, Ekeberg developed spatio‑structural theory, a framework for identifying, analyzing and composing sonic space in acousmatic music.
