Talking Measures or How to Lose Track is a music installation in search of today’s significance of the multiplicity of possible ways to relate. The work deals with the relationship between space and body and the fluid boundaries of perception in relation to universally defined metric systems.

While we often find ourselves in situations where relations become tangible and real through standardized measurements and their societal significance, the work tries to encourage other, less efficient/ sturdy lines of orientation. Treating music, sound and sound waves as physical, space generating entities, we create a network of spatial relations that the body can follow or lose track of.

Entering the Istituto Svizzero one is surrounded by a defined acoustic space, created by eight voices sounding from the corners of the actual space. While the eight points define or measure the actual physical space, the human voices also dissolve it again by creating a second space, which is very personal and intuitive. This kind of ambiguity is further created by the treatment of objects as masks and characters, by highlighting their representational significance, while through changing perspectives revealing their characters.
