Sound Art Installation presented at
SEMIBREVE Festival 2019 (GNRation, Braga).
It was supposed to be simple, silence, but it refuses to be simply defined as a bless or a meditative state. Silence is also stress, noise and it is chaos.
I hereby propose the disindividualization of silence.
We Press For Silence is a claim for silence as
an act of urban communion.
As the centrepiece:
A journal written and illustrated by Thomas Hyle, a fictional wonderer exploring the many facets of silence while proposing a collective embrace of one’s silence rather than its isolation.
