Installation. 30-minute composition from field recordings, looped. 2013 - 2017 - 2018
Biennale of Sydney, Australia, 2018

Through the Wall consists of recorded sound from both sides of the Israeli West Bank Barrier – an eight-meter concrete wall also known as the ‘Apartheid wall’.
The use of both ambient microphones and vibration sensors placed directly on the concrete surfaces reveals a merging sound environment from both sides of the wall. The installation is constructed as a physical wall with built-in speakers.
