Baaken

The most interesting object in the vault of the Baaken to me was the "aura goggles". I think that item encapsulated a large portion of the spirit of the museum, which is the discovery of a new medium of energy; electricity. The goggles ostensibly allowed one to make that which was invisible visible; auras could be seen. It is as if through science we have learned to detect more of the Earth we live on and what it is made of; what else exists with us that our biochemical toolkit cannot sense?

This sense of discovery is what I would connect to embodied sound. Thinking about communication between ourselves and the natural world is a strange concept, because we are left wondering "what it means"; nature doesn't have a moral to the story. This central idea of people as the creators of worth or meaning is very much what i am trying to manifest through my embodied sound project.
