Hibernation, 2019

Hibernation is an installation with sculpture, sound and light. An aluminum sculpture hangs in the hold of the ship The Atlas. A 35-minute sound composition is linked to a light composition. In a 35-minute loop there is a sound composition of deep drones and heavy tones combined with higher sounds. During the composition the sounds changes almost imperceptibly. The lighting of the sculpture in the dark space is linked to the sound and changes in synchrony. Due to the changing light situation, the shadows on the sculpture shift, causing the image to optically change shape. Anyone who moves through the space around the sculpture experiences the physical experience of the vibrations of the bass in the chest and body.

Hibernation was produced on the occasion of Cultuurnacht Breda 2019 on behalf of Atlas Initiative. Since 2024, Atlas Initiative offers artists and scientists a residency to sail around the world together with the crew on the self-sufficient ship.
