Heterotopic Study No. 1 is the first in a series of personal reflections on the mediated reality of urban space. Placing disparate, disfigured acoustic artefacts into the urban environment enables a temporary subjectification of the urban listener, interrupting and subverting the dominance of objective culture over the subjective mind. From these contradictory emplacements of space, time, and symbolism, emerges a temporary heterotopia or other space, nested within our everyday reality.

Heterotopic Study No. 1 was first installed at Soundyard 2016 @ Iklectik Art Lab, September 2016
