“I still cannot speak the language of the city I am currently living in, but it feels like I can navigate through the narrative noises of this language.”
The research of Ismini Christakopoulou conceives sounds as constructive material, as architectural elements that allow a space to emerge, and explores the interdependence between human experience, understanding and the surrounding. The aim is to exercise on acoustic ‘imaging’ systems towards formulating an alternative way of feeling, perceiving, attributing space through sound. The key-core question is: “how could space be experientially visualized solely via sound”.
