About the Artwork
As the horizon stands for distant desires, postcards alike are projections of a place staging horizon and view accordingly. Using the AKON archive, I experimented with abstraction and acoustical translation of these views and horizons to have a new ‘look’ at the aesthetics of historical postcards and how these shape our idea of a place. The thin line between earth and sky sets the tone, the missing landscape of four places is filled by the horizon’s melody. With a click one can listen to the differences of horizons and skylines, mountains and seaside, the differences between natural and man-made horizons.
