In Eden Eden you hear certain powerful things with a regularity (elevated train every 4 minutes, clocktower every 15) and others that are irregular and particular (people talking, birds, cars, trucks, an alarm). The two rooms are like amplifiers which indicate a two-folded reality outside the sticker-frosted windows.
In the process of creating a precise record of the sound, two devices were used as hearing-/ and seeing aids.
Between the two Edens a contact microphone was applied to capture over touch the sound that hits the window from the outside. The window listens to the dissolving acoustic hierarchies of its surroundings.
The GoPro camera was used as a lens to make the drawings, adding distance, delay, and its own logical perspective.
The sound accumulates into a sound crust. In this crust all the sounds are washed up to the margins, into an opaque rim. The sound crust wouldn’t make a practical archive of common sense, because the levels of time are inseparable. The crust defies a quick cleaning and attracts whatever comes across to stick with it.
