At the pool
Your hand is heavy, like the wind, 2021
6 wind chimes made of copper and brass hanging from different branches of a tree, wind
In the park, the wind chimes of the sound installation Your hand is heavy, like the Wind (2021) refer to the healing sounds of nature and forgotten practices of care that are not a part of modern Western medicine. For this, Youden chose a sprawling tree in the center of the green space and hung wind chimes in its branches.
Many parts to make a Whole, 2021
Interactive sound piece
Lauryn Youden created the player Many parts to make a Whole (2021) for the website. The players add or subtract sound tracks from the sound work Those stones which also express themselves at dawn (Wave Guide) over the electromagnetic waves of the Emma Kunz Grotto in Würenlos. This allows you to create your own composition.
