Interweaving Soundscapes V5.6

Art work Interweaving Soundscapes is situated at the crossroads between science and art. On a symbolic level, the spider webs represent the web of human interpersonal communication at all levels. This web, however, is not only a sympathetic aide, it is also the watcher of the centres of power and control. An individual has become prey caught in the sticky web of promises, with the threads of control tightening in much the same way as the spider wraps its web around the victim. The silk thread reveals its bivalent power; interwoven in a fabric, it caresses – wrapped around the prey, it subjugates or suffocates.
