PRESENCE|NÆRVÆR is an outdoor, site-specific sound art installation that explores the answers to these questions. It reveals the sonic treasures in and around Akershus Fortress by resonating them through a hyper-enhanced version of 'the real', hovering just above the existing background. The public are invited to experience this revealed sound-space and their own presence within it.
The work is made using the latest in environmental sound analysis technology and 3D outdoor sound projection. PRESENCE|NÆRVÆR is created by Natasha Barrett as part of the Reconfiguring the Landscape artistic research project based at Norges musikkhøgskole.
