The spatial arrangement of sound sources and resonating surfaces composes a visual image as well as a sound image. Sound – as well a spectrum as a spectre – maps out the immaterialities that produce our world.
Recently he has focused on how stress leaves acoustic traces in material structures. Infrastructure cracks are revealed by ultrasonic technology. Christoph De Boeck arranges sonorous marks that relate to a man-made world under pressure. The acoustic image points to a larger event which is taking place within a horizon we cannot define.
