With each passing minute, a piece of rice paper falls to the ground. The minimal act of this installation produces a soft sound, a poetic image of a whisper listening, the frontier between silence and sound. From his engineering background, Félix Blume explores decibelium concept, an imprecise measure unit expressing the intensity level of a sound. The paper sheets accumulation in the exhibit space materializes the passage of time and the memory of their contact with the ground.
