Sound: Robin Rådenman
8mm film: Karl-Erik Thörnqvist

In the installation Big Science, Small Country, Thörnqvist revisits the evacuation route his grandfather helped construct as part of the Esrange Space Center in the 1960s. North of Övre Soppero, o the E45 motorway, this gravel road extends even further into remoteness towards “Crash-zone B”, the area where possible space debris was intended to crash, disregarding the Sami villages located there for the winter.

Through his grandfather’s gaze, Thörnqvist portrays an infrastructural project implicated both in the arms race of the Cold War, and in the wider project of earthly as well as planetary expansion. The work asks questions about the existential consequences that follow in the wake of technological progress.

In 1970, the first Chinese satellite Dong Fang Hong I passed over Norrbotten. One of its tasks was to broadcast the national anthem with the same name (The East is Red). For the work Big science small country, Robin Rådenman has produced and fed a software system with the satellite transmission and based on the results composed a new piece of music. The original notes remain but are fragmented and out of line, randomly falling into a kind of artificial improvisation.

The work is produced in collaboration with the Resource Centre for Art and Swedish Lapland AiR.

Inverses

INVERSES is the tale of a nomadic cardboard box whose inner life unfolds on the outside. Told from a first person point-of-view, our character’s journey is a study on the nature of thoughts and feelings, of hope and memory, of discovery and loss – things which often exist as two sides of the same coin, though the distinctions between them are never quite so clear.The storybook, written by Joanne Lam and illustrated by Kyu Hwang, also serves as the foundation for INVERSES as a multi-sensory project. The complete package of items includes a soundtrack of soundscapes by Robin Rådenman with songs by Lindsay Olsen, a trio of bespoke scents by Jacqueline Steele, plus graphic design by Nazara Lázaro to tie it all together. Like stars in a constellation, each component of INVERSES can stand alone, but together they form a narrative experience greater than the sum of its parts. INVERSES is everything in between.

A series of four soundscapes, Digital/CD, 2015.
