Sound: sound in art and culture

Front Cover
In recent years both art and architecture have looked anew at the element of sound, and that interest has led to increased study of sound's potential to lend social or spatial meaning. What are the roles of sound and the sense of hearing in architecture and art in the public domain? This investigation offers perspectives from cultural philosophy, art theory and media theory, and provides fresh insights into the current conditions of the public domain. Down-to-earth descriptions of some sound-related work are accompanied by a CD-ROM of the sound project Radio Days as performed at De Appel, that puts all that theory into practice.
