On 13. June 2014 I arrived in Gdansk, Poland, for a three-week residency at Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art during their Soundplay Festival and at the nearby Hel Marine Station. While here I’m researching underwater sound and marine mammal communication amidst the ambient (human) noise pollution in the Baltic Sea, with the intention of making some new sound works under the name Submergence, which I will research and develop here and present later in the summer.
But no trip to Gdansk could be complete without some photos of the impressive architecture, both mercantile and industrial…. and I’m developing a little side project about Gdansk’s post-industrial infrastructre. If it’s too rainy to go out on the sea, to the the shipyards, to the rooftops!
