Abstract:

  • RAW is based on a tool that captures a minute of sound before and after a picture is taken. It is meant for allowing people to capture their everyday subjective experience. A third party, like journalists or documentary filmmakers, doesn’t mediate the sound and visual material created (it remains ‘RAW’). In August 2003, the tool was taken to Mali in Africa and given to 23 people who expressed themselves on their daily lives, recording sound and taking pictures, without editorial direction. The installation presents their content, without alteration, and allows the audience to immerse itself in a collection of moments of humanity.
