Since the aural landscape has always been her favourite habitat, she started exploring it through field recordings of all kinds in the most different places. Sounds are treated in a very organic way.
In her performative installation V2_Black Box, Els Viaene acts to recreate a new room within an existing one by accentuating or making disappear physical boundaries. The audience are given headphones in which live, individual sounds interact with sounds emanating from speakers in a darkened space.
These create a new audio space within the existing physical structure - an empty black room, disengaged from our physical sense of space that begins to live on its own.
