Taking Seat

Ljudbänk
Utställning
The sound work Taking Seat, by Robert Willim, takes practices of sitting as its’ point of departure by combining spoken word with manipulated field recordings. It is conceived and composed especially for the Sound Bench by Audiorama, and will premiere at Future Week by Lund University October 2020.

What are the forces set in motion by sitting? What are the technologies and techniques of sitting? Scholars like anthropologist Tim Ingold argue that we have been living in The Sitting Society for a long time. The Sitting Society is built on the idea that in order for the mind to work at its’ best, the body should be in rest. The thinker, innovator and researcher sit down, doing work, figuring things out, setting things in motion. At a drawing board, with a book or with a laptop. Sitting is simultaneously seen as a health problem, an epidemic, extended times of sitting as harmful. Then again, for many people, sitting is required for mobility. Taking seat in a vehicle, in a train, a car, on a bicycle or for that matter in a wheel chair.
