Visualising the sounds of birds

“The Sound of” explores the challenge of expressing the sound of the Municipality of Ringkøbing-Skjern. The chosen elements are photography and videos of sound waves. With photography and sound recording Elle-Mie captures the characteristic sounds of the sea, the lark, the swan and the geese that inhabit the region.

Landscape meets nature

The work explores an undefined terrain that exists between the laws of physics and the laws of art. Working with the tension between photography and video, “The Sound of” presents strikingly beautiful graphic representations of sounds side by side with silent landscapes. The still picture of the landscape meets the wild nature of bird songs. These are the both surprising and familiar sounds of the Municipality of Ringkøbing-Skjern.
