Voids, 2008 by Kevin Siwoff published on 2012/11/21 13:52:28 +0000 I wrote this piece after visiting the Jewish museum in Berlin. I was inspired by, amongst many other things, the museum's architecture. The building itself was designed by Daniel Libeskind. Libeskind connected parts of the museum with haunting concrete chambers called a "Voids". In one Void, Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman placed hundreds metal discs with amorphous faces on the floor for people to walk over. Even though the Void was very dark, I remember closing my eyes and hearing this incredible infinite ambience. "Voids, 2008" is a sonic memory of that moment in time, without form but infinite ambience.
