Spiritual Soundscape, Collective Calling
August 11th – August 17th 2019
This workshop aims to explore with an architectural installation the role of sound in a spiritual and collective context.
The natural setting of our project will contribute immensely to the nature of this sensorial sculpture. Rooted and timeless, scaled and sculpted, our installation should converse with the topography of Boisbuchet – metaphorically and literally.
The final structure will represent a collective calling through an act by and for the community and through communication across space and time. Whether this installation chimes or gongs, it will bring people together. It will explore the relationship between nature, landscape, sound, and the spiritual.
Our workshop culminates in the collective task of building together this installation, but besides offering a hands-on architectural and sculptural exercise, it also allows a self-reflective journey.
