Sonic illustra­tions

This project examines illustration executed outside its traditional realm. Accepting the obligation to operate in the service of an idea and to communicate something particular, the project seeks to identify a specific illustration methodology and constituted knowledge, and investigate these through the medium of sound, beginning with central topoi in visual storytelling such as ‘character/ actor’, ‘scenography/ environment’ ‘narrative images' ’dramaturgy’/’plot’ and 'style'. May the transposition lead to new understanding of the field of illustration? The mediated content is the layered history of a small suburban place of south east Norway, Momarken; an ancient market place and arena for horse racing, that had a near escape from becoming the last Nazi-German concentration camp built on European territory.
