AMF Gallery Opening

A Finnish Forest Frequencies sound installation can now be heard also at the AMF Gallery. The three deadwood hanging from the ceiling plays selected frequencies of the forest with Finnish animal sounds! The sounds recorded at the Finnish forests have been analyzed and according to this information their dominating frequencies have been selected. These frequencies are played back in the installation through audio channels within the wood: the sounds will come from inside the wood. Together with the wood the frequency sounds will recreate a space sounding like a Finnish forest.

Photographs are from an artistic research done with different types of growth mediums that are used in basic microbiology. Raster images are exposed onto cultivated yeast with Ultraviolet LED and fluorescent lamps. Also other growth mediums has been photographed. Since January 2014 different growth mediums has been explored and progress has been photographed and recorded. In every sense of the word, the project is alive.

Comments, experiences and photos of you with the installation can be posted with #FinnForestFreq

The sound installation is sponsored by Arts Promotion Centre Finland and Aalto University.
