Sounding the Anthropocene
matralab is a transdisciplinary artistic group asking both how we can sound the Anthropocene, and how does the Anthropocene sound us. Their premise is that our aesthetic engagement needs to unfold within an extreme temporality, by transcending the sense-perceptions we live by habitually. In their project, they investigate how such imperceptible processes can be explored artistically and thereby become emotionally relevant, creating sonic events and subacoustic vibrations, beyond the human scale. It is an innovative approach to finding what they call a "geopoetics" as an expression of the ecological reality humanity is a part of - and beholden to.
