5-channel Multimedia Installation

Ecoutéz brings images of nature into an artificial domestic space, integrating those images with the furniture, furnishings and visitors to the exhibit.

Ecoutéz imagines that the shadows, light and reflections of trees that come into our homes can hear us and the noises we generate.

This piece makes us aware of the sounds we unwittingly emanate that these ‘light-trees’ hear. In addition, tree-related found footage reminds visitors of the significance of tree imagery in our culture.
