Sympoietic Sound, Helga Jakobson Talk at aceartinc.

  • aceartinc. 290 McDermot Avenue, 2nd Floor Winnipeg Canada (map)

Sympoietic Sound takes its name from M. Beth Demster’s definition of collectively-producing systems. The installation highlights the webbed patterns and relations between plants, non human creatures, and humans. In this exhibition relays pass over and through non visible boundaries creating connections and dissonances, and are used to create a soundscape. A co-evolving sound generated from on-goingness.

Here, in this collectively producing system, there are the sounds of plants becoming with webs, humans becoming with both- we hear living, dying and all that lies between. As Donna Haraway says, Nothing makes itself; sympoiesis is a word for worlding-with, for company.
