Soap Re-sound: a Practical Guide
by Natalia Lyakh
Natalia Lyakh, artist from Saint Petersburg, suggests re-sounding the reality around and finding out the reason why soap sounds like the wind
Soap is one of the quarantine heroes. It acts as an image. In this video research, as in many others, I swap image with sound, that turns out to be more powerful than image. Wind is a very fitting metaphor for the human mind: it is invisible, yet its actions are obvious. Their combination — a new substance — a filter, protection, soap, mask shielding from information flow. This is a very focused choice of one's own sound preferences, interests, emotions. This choice is unlimited even in isolation. It is inside us, so we can re-sound everything, any reality. We ourselves sound and vibrate through our bodies on a certain frequency. Research has proven, that high positive frequencies enhance body defense, and perhaps get rid of some problems, and perhaps add some high frequencies to our collective background noise. Soap sounds like wind. And now I suggest you seeing my previous experiments of this kind.
