Science Fiction_3114

Sound, neon, wall

The multilayered sound installation Science Fiction_3114 was produced by manipulating the soundtracks of landmark science fiction films – Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville (1965), François Truffaut’s Fahrenheit 451 (1966), Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris (1972) and Stalker (1979), and Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element (1997). These films are seen as cultural manifestations of our ideas of the future and the unknown. By rearranging the narratives, Lislegaard wishes to defamiliarize the scenarios. To make the future “unknown” again and make a vibrational resource for future becomings.
