Coming Home

interactive audiovisual installation, 2016

I come home after a long day and turn on the light.
What do I hear? What mood am I in?
What sounds pleasant or disturbing?

The installation „Coming home“ by Lisa Bickel tries to shift the visitor from the exhibition to a intimate situation. Individual soundscapes can be created by turning on and off different lightbulbs. Sound, which we hear everyday, which we don’t even notice anymore, can create a feeling of intimacy and bring up memories.

Especially in this time, during the refugeecrisis, „coming home“ becomes a totally new meaning. Where are the borders of our home? The own house? The national border? Can we feel home in a museum?
