During the covid-19 lockdowns, seismologists around the world reported that the Earth was vibrating at a slower rate as a result of the sudden slowing in human activity. This quieting of human activity is known today as the anthropause and it marks the first time since the dawn of the industrial era when our systems and activities stopped and unveiled the true consequences of the impact of noise pollution.
An installation sited in the Mission to the Seamen Gallery space in Melbourne’s Docklands was designed to make people aware of their influence on these natural systems supporting their existence. Providing people with the agency to change their individual and collective relationships with each other and the environment. Resonating together in harmony towards a more equitable future.
