Abstract

Blindfolded, plunged into darkness…
The listener is invited into the dark, to put on headphones and reflect with me on the way in which the work of Lundahl & Seitl encourages each ‘visitor’ to journey through an artistic imagining and to experience perspective in the process. Surveying imagination, memory and (self) consciousness, these thoughts will consider the way in which, in playing across the suspenseful and suspended moment, the visitor becomes highly attuned to attending to waiting and intensely aware of being in the dark during a Lundahl & Seitl event.
...Thoughts emerging from within and beyond the darkness of the moment…thoughts illuminated by the dark.

An audio installation that contemplates ideas around; feeling and being in blindfolded and pitch-black performance; the allure of darkness; haptic perception and visuality; embodied beholding and affective memory; the playfulness and potency of audience immersion in the dark.
