Opening The Intimate Earthquake Archive Sissel Marie Tonn

15/12/2016
19:00 - 21:00

We would like to invite you for the opening of The Intimate Earthquake Archive on Thursday 15 December from 19.00. Please register online if you want to come to the opening.

The Intimate Earthquake Archive is an interactive installation by Sissel Marie Tonn that allows visitors to access and experience earthquakes recorded in Groningen, which are related to gas drilling. Tonn has created an archive of the man-made earthquakes from seismic data registered by the KNMI. The archive translates this data into a composition of vibrations, enabling visitors to experience these man-made earthquakes through sensation. In her artistic practice Tonn explores the relationship between human experience and an environment undergoing change.

With this project Sissel Marie Tonn is the winner of the Theodora Niemeijer prize 2016.
