Public sound installation in the newly built Värtapiren harbour terminal in Stockholm, Sweden.

5 Granite Boulders, 3 Transducer Speakers.
Duration 24’33’’

Comissioned by: Stockholm Konst and Ports of Stockholm in 2016

2066 is a permanent sound installation on an outdoor terrace of the Värtapiren terminal building.
The work creates an individual and intimate encounter with sound in a public space, it can only be listened to through bone conduction while lying down on one of the 3 larger rocks. This means a clear sound is created inside the listeners head once it touches a small metal plate inserted on the surface of the stone.

The sound consists of an elusive dialogue that ponders on how the world will look like in 2066. The visions are collected from different people representing various professions, architects, scientists, economist etc. I asked each contributor to describe, how they, through their professional experiences believe the world will look like in 50 years from now.

Since the piece is permanent it will be interesting to see how much more these visions actually tell about the anxieties and hopes of today than actually predict the future.
