Vacant Space (installation - Belgian premiere)


Vacant Space, created by audio artist/architect Janek Schaefer in collaboration with Chris Watson (master of wildlife recording) and David Tinapelle, is a commission by the Sonic Arts Network to create an immersive installation using sounds and images collected inside a wide variety of empty interiors.

The life and space of architecture without human occupation. It embraces the context of the generic white gallery, by amplifying the void.
