The exhibition at Stiftelsen 3,14 combines a 32 meter mural chalk drawing and 12 channel surround sound into an immersive installation.

Drawings and sound were developed on site over five hectic days in front of the opening. Lindahls chalk-drawing continued to evolve throughout the exhibition period, and as the exhibition period came to an end, the drawing ended in destruction.

16 channels of sound and 5 HD video projections. As in the second installation, loudspeakers are arranged around the edges of the gallery space, on the floor and mounted on the wall just below ceiling height.

Re: place and Sandnes exhibitions

Installations

Re: place and Sandnes exhibitions

2012-2013 I was engaged at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHIB) leading the art research project Re: place. The project was an investigation of (relationships between) place, time and memory as manifested in artistic works exploring image, sound, text – or combinations of these. The main artistic outcome of the project was a pair of exhibitions at KINOKINO Centre for Art and Film and Sandnes kunstforening in the fall 2013.

Augmented spatiality was curated by María Andueza.

Lontano

Installations

Lontano

“Lontano” is an installation / event taking place in an anechoic chamber. It addresses the anechoic chamber as a site of research within several fields of relevance to my own practise, and also brings awareness to issues of spatial hearing, the rich soundscapes that surrounds us, and how we are situated and immersed in the world through sound.

It does so by inviting four persons at a time into the chamber for a shared session listening to surround sound field recordings.

Installation by LMW (Trond Lossius, Jon Arne Mogstad and Jeremy Welsh) at Visningsrommet USF, combining video, painting and sound.

Cubic Second (2006)

Installations

Cubic Second (2006)

Audio-visual installation, solo exhibition at Hordaland kunstsenter.

Physics throw me off: A line multiplied by a line is a plane. A plane multiplied by a line becomes volume. I can almost grasp the idea of velocity being derived from location in space. But acceleration implies time multiplied by itself. What does a square second feel like? And what is the volume of sound? A cubic second?

Trickster (2005)

By Andrea Sunder-Plassmann and Trond Lossius.

The trickster is an important archetype in the history of man who rebels against authority, pokes fun at the serious…He exists to question & not accept things blindly…We seem most accessible to the gifts of the Trickster when we ourselves are at or near boundaries or are experiencing transition. As an archetype, the Trickster, the boundary dweller, finds expression through human imagination and experience
