Lundahl & Seitl / Streetlight Harvesters

Lundahl & Seitl present their new work Streetlight Harvesters, made with co-artists Untold Garden. In a series of invisible sound sculptures, this project appropriates the city’s street lights in the form of a Monstrous Creature – conceived from a lineage of human control of the visible light spectrum, from fire & oil lanterns to the gas lights of the 19th century & today’s electrical LED lights. The project focuses on light as a measure and impact of human-technological presence across the earth disrupting the life of animals, in particular bees, moths, bats and migratory birds but also some insect populations. These animals use their senses in a radically different way than humans do. For example, insects use light, such as the moon or the sun as their mechanism for navigation, an artificial light source therefore confuses them. Within the streetlight creature, your aims and intentions become mixed up with the creatures as it transmits itself into your surroundings and the other visitors. The balance between symbiosis, competition and parasitism is fragile.

Lundahl & Seitl are pioneers of a new immersive anti-disciplinary practice within contemporary art and performance. In their work, simulated realities are left incomplete, with triggers and nudges that activate the visitor’s ability to create independent meaning from a web of mental and physical objects. Notions of freedom, autonomy, and what is real, imagined and perceived are negotiated by the visitors themselves, in philosophical investigations of boundaries and connections between the living, objects, places and environments. Lundahl & Seitl’s works and projects have been exhibited worldwide, including (but not limited to) Tate Britain, Whitechapel Gallery, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berliner Festspiele, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Avignon Festival, Kochi Muziris Biennalen, Momentum 8 – Tunnel Vision, Nordic Biennial of Contemporary Art, Weld, Nationalmuseum, Dramaten, Accelerator and Magasin III in Sweden.

Walking Festival of Sound is a transdisciplinary event exploring the role of walking through and listening to our everyday surroundings. It combines a number of free and public events including walking performances, walking seminars and listening sessions, all taking place in diverse public spaces and online. Walking Festival of Sound facilitates a meeting point for the international network of practitioners and researchers interested in sound and walking. Through diverse events we explore how walking and listening practices can augment and challenge the way we perceive, navigate through, and care for our shared environments. In 2019 the festival took place in two cities, Stockholm, Sweden and Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. In April 2021, the festival moved to Krakow and Edinburgh. In 2022, WFoS takes place in multiple places to be announced soon.
