VAN ABBE MUSEUM This Is Not A Space
Commissioned by the van Abbe Museum as part of the ongoing exhibition Once upon a time. 'This is not a space' is a soundtrack made with binaural stereo, to achieve realistic sound environments. Visitors to the exhibition wear headphones that transmit the soundtrack via a radio broadcast. They are able to walk around freely while unconsciously the museum and the sound gradually merge.
The architecture of the Van Abbemuseum building and the exhibition both impact how the visitor experiences the works of art. In this Storyline, the visitor chooses the route. This is not a space is an audible fictional layer superimposed on the physical surroundings. It gradually becomes an unquestioned part of the architecture. The illusion of new space draws the visitor through the exhibition along unanticipated ways, so as to experience surprising moments of confrontation, recognition and contemplation.
