40 mins of stereo sound, QR code, dimension variable
2015

This QR code is linked to a "field" recording of my room where I spend most of the time with the computer. The recording captures 40 minutes of the sonic aspect of the person behind the internet. The sound of this recording includes social media video playback, music streaming, pornography, mobile applications and all my little gesture. As I work primarily on sound, we seldom think of the “sound” of the internet. Therefore, I try to examine the internet with sound, by showing the sound which we all interacted with but also mostly ignored in our daily life.
