My name is Isak Solberg. I am a 21-year-old mixed-media artist from Seattle, Washington. While I often delve into mixed-media work, I focus on videography. I am constantly looking for ways to learn new techniques to document the world around me and teach others creatively, which is reflected in my work.
The Art of Listening
This piece explores the interdependent nature of listening and sound, which are often overlooked but fundamental components of our daily experiences. Whether communicating with others, navigating our environment, or engaging with technology, listening plays a crucial role. By developing a better understanding of listening as an embodied process, we can become more attuned to the world around us. This involves recognizing the complex, multi-dimensional nature of listening as an art that we can improve upon and acknowledging the multi-sensory, embodied experience of listening that can occur even in silence. Furthermore, we will explore how listening is embedded in soundscapes, shaped by a blend of cultures, human activity, and the living and physical worlds beyond human existence.
