This project investigated the effects of silence and the absense of electric light on space(internal/ psychic space and external/physical space).


We lived together for one month : a group of 12 artists from Switzerland, Japan and America.
We maintained silence: cooking, cleaning, gardening and eating together without speaking.
We used candlelight as a substitute for electric light .

This project posed several questions:
What is silence?
Is it possible to experience complete silence?
Are shadows something to be afraid of?
How does an absence of electric light influence thought processes, interactions,
personal habits and daily routines?
How do you communicate with others without speaking?
Does introspection necessitate isolation?
