sic! sound in context
“For the past few years, Åsa Stjerna has been following two scientific research teams’ use of underwater acoustic technologies – that is, methods that use sound in various ways – in their research on the fragile Arctic environment. Over time, as much as investigating what the technologies actually generate in terms of information, she has become interested in the limitations of the technologies, and the gaps that arise between what the technologies are able or unable to measure and the final outcome the researchers produce. How does science deal with these gaps? What do these gaps tell us? What is the artistic potential of these gaps?”
