Sound Sauna Project Underway

04 Jan 2013

Shawn Decker and Jan-Erik Andersson Sounding Dome Sauna

My latest collaboration with Finnish artist Jan-Erik Andersson is  a Sound Sauna for Turku, Finland, Cultural Capital 2011. 

For this project, we are making a working Sauna (one of a number of artist commissioned Saunas being created for the event) which will create sound as it is used.  The picture above shows the Sauna just as it is finished being fabricated.  I will be in Turku Aug 1-10 working on getting the sound portion up.  The piece will be installed in May 2011 for public use for the entire year.  Look for updates, more images, and audio recordings (!!!) as the project develops.
