Sound, light, singing by Henriikka Gröndahl
An opera singer sings fragments from Joanna Russ’ 1970 science fiction novel The Female Man. In the novel several possible and impossible future-worlds meet. In the installation, Naked Future (2010), the soundtrack replays from two speakers, a collage of silence, paper-rustle, breaths and voices. Fragments of voiced text are edited and layered as multiplied, cut-up and repeated loops exploring the words and the emotional resonance.
