Ubiquity - New Perspectives on Traumatic Experiences
The audio installation
“Ubiquity – New Perspectives on Traumatic Experiences”
will be exhibited
11-13 December 2019
at The Dax Centre in Melbourne.
The installation is a collaboration by musicologist and sound artist Miriam Akkermann, programmer and composer Andre Bartetzki and psychology professor Philipp Kanske and Centre for Health Equity’s Eva Alisic.
The installation is based on audio snippets taken from the Ear for Recovery project, a study of trauma recovery among children who experienced a serious injury. The sound installation presents these snippets and aims to create a space that invites listeners to reflect on what life is like for families affected by trauma. It confronts the visitor with tensions between the mundane and the deep, the emotional and the practical, and the worlds of adults and children – with all the ordinary routines and beauty of daily life.
The installation at The Dax Centre is open to the public on 11, 12 and 13 December between 12pm and 5pm. The festive opening event will take place on 12 December, from 5pm until 7pm, and includes brief talks by the developers, Miegunyah Distinguished Visiting Fellow Matthias Mehl and Charmaine Smith, Director of The Dax Centre.
