Young Artist Award 2013: “The installation intrigues the viewer to approach reality from an interesting angle. The piece intelligently combines acoustical research with artistic form and positively surprises the viewer with mature and uncompromised realisation. In the context of the rarely cultivated sound art in Estonia, it is a remarkable work of art and the jury are curious to see the artist’s further developments on the topic in the confines of the personal exhibition accompanied by the prize.”

[ Heart sound body, Jupiter sound body, stethoscope, sound analyzer. ]
A dialogue between the celestial body Jupiter and one’s own heartbeats, where the overtones unite bodies between which physical contact is unthinkable.
The installation stems from the relation of overtones resonating from the surfaces of two objects. The larger object is called the Heart sound body, which acts as a corpus for the overtones of heartbeats pulsating in real-time. The smaller object is called Jupiter’s sound body, which resonating surface is that of a spherical mirror – a glass globe covered with sheet silver that is reflecting itself internally, and therefore, infinitely. It is a space that is inaccessible to the human eye but which you can approach in your mind. Selecting the form for Jupiter’s sound body is based on an imaginary voyage to Jupiter, which would also be endless, as to our knowledge, the planet is in gaseous state. The sound body acts as a speaker for electromagnet waves recorded from Jupiter by NASA Voyager that have been converted into acoustic waves that are audible to the human ear.
The harmony or dissonance between the sound signals from these two sound sources is determined by how many overtones they in fact share. The installation enables each person to listen to the overtones hidden in their own heart in relation to the sounds “sung” by Jupiter, and determine, whether the musical dialogue heard in the gallery is perceived as a pleasant or unpleasant one. The more mutually shared overtones between the two, the more harmonious and agreeable the dialogue, and the less there are of those, the more the subjective judgement is likely to lean towards dissonance.
Artist’s note: The project was inspired by a recognition that there are common elements between something as close to us as our own heart and something so distant as Jupiter. If relating on a physical level is possible across such vast distances, it should also be possible with bodies in closer vicinity.
