Collecting Meaningful Silences
Such a room is called an anechoic chamber, its six walls made of special material, a room without echoes. I entered one at Harvard University several years ago and heard two sounds, one high and one low. When I described them to the engineer in charge, he informed me that the high one was my nervous system in operation, the low one my blood in circulation. Until I die there will be sounds.
John Cage, Silence
Collecting of meaningful silences is a one-on-one performance where each participant is faced with a list of questions projected on a wall. The sounds of this encounter were recorded.
