  • About the artwork

    Material Vision - Silent Reading is a film and series of prints, based on the creation of new musical instruments and a performance developed on Bear Island. 19th century Norwegian geologist Balthazar Keilhau describes the island as the “Cadaver of the Earth” due to its lack of vegetation and harsh weather conditions. In exploring an unfamiliar landscape, one cannot avoid a certain process of appropriation, whether one is exploring for the purpose of politics, resources, science or art.

    The explorer’s gaze cannot help but desire to possess and master the object in view. Through a combination of artistic and scientific performances, Material Vision – Silent Reading investigates various ways of reading a landscape and how the viewer and the viewed relate to each other.

    This work is a photogravure on fine art paper with a total size of approx. 53 x 65 cm (including the white margin). It depicts twice the reading of a landscape while the eye tracking was recorded and superimposed later on.

    This work is not framed. We suggest a white wooden frame. If you prefer to have this work framed we'd be happy to arrange this for you. Please contact us, prior to or after ordering, for pricing and availability.
