IHME Helsinki commission Listening Through the Dead Zones is a site-specific sound installation by the Norwegian artist Jana Winderen, in collaboration with Tony Myatt.
On the shore of the Baltic Sea, at the Rowing Stadium in Helsinki, the audience will be able to listen to different species of mammals, including humans, and to various species of fish and crustacea inhabiting the Ocean. Winderen has been investigating how human activity is influencing the dead zones in the Baltic Sea and similar environments close to shores and in lakes.
Winderen’s practice pays particular attention to audio environments and to creatures which are hard for humans to access such under water.
