→ Aural Storm
Aural Storm is an immersive performance installation exploring notions of desire, voyeurism, social structures and loss of power through an us and them narrative. Built on a constant feeling of watching and being watched, Aural Storm intertwines spatial installation, performance, sound, text and sculpture to build a strangely familiar and uncanny universe. The magnetic field of solar winds is used as a metaphor for how an uncontrolled force can impact the fictional community Penumbra. How does one, in a polarised society, connect with the surrounding bodies?
Aural Storm is thematically permeated by different materials connected to corrosion. The visitors gets absorbed in a transformed space, inviting them to share and change this incandescent world’s physical environment. In the 5 different rooms of Penumbra, overgrown with rust, the inhabitant’s fey stories continually resist conformity. Similarly to the journey of a video game, visitors are able to move freely and interact with the different parts of the installation.
