‘The Intimate Earthquake Archive’ by Sissel Marie Tonn (in collaboration with Jonathan Reus and Marije Baalman) is presented in collaboration with FIBER and is also part of VERVE, an interdisciplinary art programme organized by the Dutch Embassy. VERVE showcases 9 different long-term collaborations between Dutch artists and the Belgian cultural field
The Intimate Earthquake Archive is an interactive installation that creates bodily experiences from the seismic data of the man-made earthquakes recorded in Groningen. Worn interactive ‘interfaces’ transform the data into vibratory compositions on the body of the visitor. The vibrations move across the skin similarly to how the earthquakes moved across the land, and inspire ‘deep listening’ within the body.
