Aernoudt Jacobs (be)
Permafrost

Sound sculpture, 2009

Permafrost is a sound sculpture about the freezing process of water. The crystallization process becomes a sound source; the growing mass of ice becomes visible and tangible. In the installation we can observe and hear the constantly repeated cycle of freezing and melting. Jacob’s work exposes the complexity of a natural process and translates it to something that can be individually experienced.

About the Artist

Aernoudt Jacobs (*1968) lives and works in Brussels. After his architectural studies it did not take long, however, before he chose to work with sound. His works are the result of research into the different aspects of field recording and how to assimilate this material into new forms and contexts. In his installation work Jacobs investigates correlations between sound, matter, space/location, perception and psychoacoustics. The association of sound perception and memory is an ongoing preoccupation that is visible in much of his work.
