Labyrinthitis | A concert by Jacob Kirkegaard | 33° | Olaf Otto Becker, Jacob Kirkegaard, Camille Seaman

List Art Auditorium


In Labyrinthitis, Kirkegaard employs otoacoustic emissions (low-level sounds emitted by the cochlea in response to auditory stimulus). Emissions generated by the artist’s ears produce otoacoustic emissions in the ears of the listeners. In this way, Labyrinthitis reframes hearing as an active sense rather than a passive one and positions the ear itself as an instrument.
