Jacob Kirkegaard
Born 1975 in Copenhagen. Lives and works in Berlin. Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist who focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments : a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, a TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself. The piece for Aichi Triennale 2010 consists of sound and video footage of the so-called Singing Sands or Booming Dunes in the deserts of Oman.
