In the Age of Quarantine
The Audio-Visual Archive presents not only a collection of sounds and images but an entire system to put things into proper order; sonically as well as visually. It is comprised of archival cards with analog audio tape on their backs organized in folders and boxes as well as a dedicated reading apparatus, the ‘Lesegerät’. The archival cards connect images (drawings, scores, etc.) to short recordings of related sound accessible only through AV archive’s proprietary ‘Lesegerät’. The connection between the sonic and visual here is purely poetic. The analog version of the AV archive is counterpointed by a digital version on snark.art’s blockchain-based platform entitled ‘Sometimes a Thousand Twangling Instruments’. http://www.volkmarklien.com/works/installations/av-archiv-E.html
