MARLOES VAN SON

INSTALLATIONS

Door, Frost & The Field

October 2023


These works are created during an artist residency at Farmstudio (Vysoká, Czechia)

Door
Every door has its own way of opening and closing: some scrape, others squeak. I've recorded the sound of doors around Farmstudio and used them to create percussive samples. The box plays these samples in random order. Who's opening and closing doors inside?

Frost
In cold temperatures water vapour can freeze on glass forming frost patterns or ice flowers. This is the starting point for a light installation consisting of an old window, metal wires and LED lights.

The Field
Sound performance using synth, vocals and recordings of opening / closing doors and dripping rain. Together these create a textured soundscape with a melodic twist and slowly building rhythm.

Exhibited at FarmStudio OPEN from October 14 - December
