Art Installation

Sonic Violence

in collaboration with Banu Çiçek Tülü

Medium: Printed on white fabric with color (140x100 cm)

With this provocative sound blocking object, the artists aim to use the power and politics of design to create  images that invite the audience to think about the possible connections between sonic violence and verbal aggression in public space. The headphone-shaped object is produced with different materials; plastic bottles, newspapers, used materials, everyday objects, etc. For this occasion, the one with bread will be presented on printed fabric which could be seen from the storefront. These headphones have been produced as  provocative designs to create awareness of the sonic aggressions which we confront daily. We use headphones as protection objects to block any sound.
