BLUE HOUR OBSERVATORY (Audiovisual Study, 2016)
10 participants, 10 rooms, sound recorders, no artificial light.
Twice a day for about 40 minutes we find ourselves in the blue hour: a time measured in color and a color made by time. Considering every room as a quotidian observatory for the blue hour, this project sought to examine the interplay between our everyday spaces and the blue hour. Ten participants were invited to spend the time after sunset in an unlit room and simply to observe the blue hour through a window. Their auditory observations were mounted to a collective investigation of color, space, affect and language.
