Play in Reverse

IMG_4204Apart from listening to the wind; a site-specific sound file is triggered and heard when you use the swing. The sound file is played out loud when you swing forward and the same sound file will be played in reverse when you swing backwards.

Play in Reverse is in some parts about the tension between surrendering control and yet, being in control. The intention of the concept is to explore sounds informational and mystical character – the substantiality of the perishable. The person who uses the swing is in control over the soundscape, at the same time as he or she is controlled by the swing, as it goes back and forth in a narrative.
