Maria Blondeel 2006
Belgian artist Maria Blondeel‘s exhibit her new audio installation, entitled "Sunlight For Sound Pillow", on the CCNOA Landing. This work consists of a number of pillows with build-in loudspeakers, featuring sound recordings of sunlight. Blondeel’s artistic practice can be situated in the field of sound art. She is fascinated by audio and visual technology. She has worked on artistic experiments that are intrinsically connected with the lapse of time as visualized through sunlight, as well as through changes in light as day becomes night. In her site recordings, particularly at night, the electric light has a major impact on the sonic image. She experimented with the sonification of light in both urban and rural environments to obtain insight into this complex visual process. Maria Blondeel made sonic light installations, and site-specific works for vehicles, telephone and radio, participated in concerts and performances in collaboration with musicians, and produced works for CD and video. Her work has been shown in galleries, museums and festivals in Europe, the U.S.A. and Asia.
