UNDER THE HORIZON


Under the Horizon
2011-17
Olfactory-acoustic scenario

 

For centuries humans have used the immeasurable line of the horizon to navigate from one place to another. ’Under the Horizon’ employs sculptural conventions and narrative expectations. A plinth elevates a bath to eye level. From the taps a black liquid holding the scent of ‘under’ is constantly running, the flow unchecked. The smell composition draws from the scent of organisms growing under the earth. A soundscape formed of recordings made by the artist in a factory manufacturing military uniforms is embedded in the sculpture. Cloth being stitched by machines mixes with the sound of artificial rain being used to test the durability of the clothing for use in extreme weather.
