I'm So Happy I Could Die!!
3 Mp3 players with headphones, 4 x benches
Sizes, approximately 110 cm - 40 cm
Soundtracks 2.30 min. and 0.50 min. in loop
Sound-spill coming from the headsets invites the audience to climb the benches and reach out.
The viewer has to focus on their balance and body in order not to fall down, while listening to the sound of a girl screaming in a both joyful and frightened way, mixed with an upbeat techno melody.
The experience of the sound intensifies when balancing on top of the bench.
The installation's visual appearance is affected by the individual approach and interaction on the bench.
Sound: Mette Eilenberg Søgaard
Sound edit: Stine Kvam and Sebastian Hedevang Jensen
Low bas frequency, best listen to in headset
