Mari Kretz – sound and visual artist
I work in the fields of acoustic and visual art and have mainly focused on sound art, sound installations and drawings.
In my work with sound and signals, I focus on sound around us that we cannot hear. From scientific studies of acoustical phenomena in the atmosphere, low frequency radio waves travelling around Earth and in the depths of space, as well as from electric signals generated by internal organs and the nervous system of the human body.
Working with researchers and engineers, ranging from astronomy to medicine, I visualize the barely perceptible and poetic worlds around us. In my recent works I work with live feeds and field recordings of Very Low Frequency radio waves from the upper reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere.
