sound installation
2010 version
arte sonoro
la casa encendida
madrid, spain

oionos was originally created in 2006 as a sound/sculpture installation for the exhibition “the grand promenade” in athens greece, curated by anna kafetsi. the works were sited in various outdoor pedestrian areas around the acropolis, and very much inspired by the architecture of dmitris pikionis. the sounds were generated from various field recordings, toys, and the music box from my crib (inspired by a small display case of “non-instruments” in the basement of the athens museum of musical instruments), while the sculpture forms were related to kites designed by alexander graham bell.

in 2010 i was invited by curator jm costa to re-work the piece for the exhibition arte sonoro at la casa encendida. like athens, this piece was once again sited outdoors in a park, and in a small tree in downtown madrid. this short video is a short document of the piece.
