Through the ad-hoc collectivity that is “Temporary continent.”, Critical Media Lab Senior Researcher Jamie Allen (with Louise Carver, Nina Jäger, Sarrita Hunn, James McAnally, Clémence Hallé, Benoît Verjat, Duncan Evennou, Anne-Sophie Milon) has co-created an online and offline sound installation for the upcoming The Shape of A Practice Events at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin This autumn’s event is part of the Anthropocene Curriculum series of events which has involved the open access publication continent. since its inception.
Framed as the voice of a temporary continent—materially, geographically and mythically constituted—the installation joins the dynamic, processual, and always flowing Mississippi, to populate an estuary of media streams evolving from a turbulent river.
(un)mutable channels contains original materials recorded by Temporary continent. and from Listening to the Mississippi 2015 – 2019 (Monica Moses Haller, Sebastian Muellauer).
The project is part of Canada’s culture program as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2020/21 and is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada.
The sound installation will be present at HKW, Berlin, and streamed for the duration of The Shape of a Practice discourse program via the online environment:
