Sound of Dust

Slobodan STOŠIĆ

The amount of dust depends on the composition of air, the age of the house, the quality of the material, the presence/absence of people. The opening of windows, air movements, the wind and draught lessen the amount of dust. House–dust consists of people's skin cells, nails, pollen, human hair, paper fibres and anything else around.

The work consists of microphones arranged in a certain space. They are placed in different positions and on different levels so as to catch the flow, the sound of dust falling. It is a conceptual exercise, each individual creates the work, each individual will understand and create their own vision of the sound of dust since the microphones are not switched on. The questions
asked are directed at the uselessness and transience that the dust alludes to with its ephemeral existence. It has been chosen as the new medium of the work since it is ever–present, yet virtually non–existent, thereby creating a certain ready–made object out of the traces and refuse of human transience... The sound as an isolated form of air is one of the main topics of the work.
The goal is to achieve the non–existent work, the form which will always be in the making and therefore always different. The sound and the dust complement each other since the sound materialises the dust and vice versa, the movement of dust materialises the sound.
