Where to keep them – do they keep themselves?


The following is a digital photo collection of objects which I subjectively connects with listening in different ways. The objects were photographed in one of my kitchen cabinets.

All the objects can be experience on request throughout the ‘a Living Room as a White Cube for Listening’ project. A booklet with the photos shown here will also be displayed physical in the living room.
