Sounds after Caspar David Friedrich is an ongoing project where the emblematic paintings by the romantic German artist are revisited and recaptured through sound recordings. By means of an intensive investigation, the specific sites and landscapes painted by Friedrich in the 19th century were relocated and visited in order to record their respective sounds with a professional sound recording equipment. The project proposes a contemplative reflection upon nature through sound and presence instead of through an image based relation. It is simultaneously a celebration of the artist Caspar David Friedrich, as well as a critique of a contemporary life-style and it image-mediated relationship with nature and the physical world.
