During the residency, I will focus on the exploration of materiality of daily objects by working with the principle of amplification. I am interested in the semantics of the term as well as technical aspects related to it, which imply the state of things before, during and after the process (of amplification). My idea is to consider them all equally and play with the hierarchies between the object, its sound and its amplified presence.  

If we don’t take the term amplification as purely technical, we can approach it as a strategy to highlight certain objects or their qualities among others. Thus, we can imagine that it can be done in many ways: by increasing the volume of the “chosen”, by muting “unwanted” or simply by setting our own attention and mode of listening. We can amplify with the aid of technologies but also through performativity and by relating to things in a different way. Yet, it is worth remembering that by bringing something into focus we certainly overshadow something else.
