Proximity effect

Paul Devens

Sound artist Paul Devens has created a new artwork in the Church of Saint Servatius in Groot-Loon. Proximity Effect is a sound installation tailor-made for the beautiful church, parts of which date from the 12th century. Using speakers and sensors, the visitor is absorbed in an interplay of tones, sounds of outside recordings, acoustics, echo and space.

Devens thus presents a unique experience within this historic architecture, with proximity and distance as key concepts.

The artwork is temporarily out of order.
