Sub

SUB - sound installation by Morten Poulsen

We often think of the ocean as a silent place, but it can actually be quite a noisy environment. The sounds used in Sub were recorded with underwater microphones at a depth of approximately 8 meters, about 900 meters off the coast of Hirtshals, where the ferries and fishing boats are sailing. While we can choose to enter and leave this noisy environment as we wish, creatures in the sea have no choice but to live in it.

Sub will exhibited in bunker # 42 in the Hirtshals bunker museum throughout the Nature Meeting taking place May 24-26 in Hirtshals, North Denmark.

The sound installation, Sub is a precursor to the collaborative project The Re-Occupied Bunker, created by artists Inge Tranter, Janice Hunter and Morten Poulsen, which will be presented at Hirtshals City Anniversary 2019.

The Re-Occupied Bunker is supported by Hjørring Municipality, Vendsyssel Historical Museum, The Bunker Museum, Hjørring Education Authority, BMMK and Hirtshals Lighthouse.
