Join Jacek Smolick for a discussion about his soundwalk piece Intertidal room, field recording, environmental listening, and storytelling.
Jacek Smolicki is a Kraków-born, Stockholm-based interdisciplinary artist, designer, researcher, and soundwalker interested in attending to (as in paying attention) and recording (as in calling to mind and heart) the diversity of human and other-than-human realms and existences.
In his design and art practice, besides working with existing documents, archives, and heritage, Smolicki develops new modes of sensing, field-recording, para-archiving, and mediating stories and signals from various sites, scales, and temporalities. His work is manifested through soundscape compositions, soundwalks, site-responsive performances, experimental para-archives, audio-visual installations, and diverse forms of writing. He has exhibited, presented his works, performed, soundwalked, and gave workshops internationally (e.g. Kraków, Madrid, Moscow, Helsinki, Stockholm, San Francisco, Budapest, Vienna, Sarajevo, Oxford). Smolicki is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Linköping University and associated scholar at Uppsala University in Sweden.
