Nature. The body. The void. God.
The Sounding is a meditation on finding god in the nothingness that exists within nature, the universe, and our bodies. It is about the succumbing to the void. A form of unification – a whole. In order to find god. For god can be found in the nothingness of nature – but also within our own bodies. Our visceral being. Our innermost. The deepest depths.
Laura Hansen is a Canadian artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She is an installation and sculptural artist who works with materials that are derived from the earth, her body, and fragments of industrial debris. Scent is an important aspect of her work and, as a perfumer, she crafts her own scent to be used in her installations.
