The audio installation level consists of five glass columns that reside in the heart of the Peltse fields. Each column emits its own vocal tone. Together they form a harmony. The emitted tones gradually change, creating dissonances that then evolve again into harmony. A constantly changing sound landscape. This monumental sound artwork is part of the 3-day expo route in the public space.

In his work Bouke Groen (NL) researches and questions underlying mechanisms that we apply in our interactions with each other and our environment. The focus lies on the undercurrent of filter mechanisms, underlying agreements, motives and assumptions; that which has a profound effect on our relationships between ourselves and what surrounds us, both personally and socially. However, Groen and his work does not take a stance in debate or make critical statements, but rather he reflects on how we treat each other and the world. This is important for his work to establish a relationship with the public without prejudice or pretension. As a result it involves the public in his research, and allows them to discover and experience their own unconscious connection with their environment and each other.

This installation is part of the 3-day Expo-route from 23.10-25.10 at various locations in and around Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof, the Canal Zone and Gemeente Pelt.
