Expanded Field Recording

by BJ Nilsen

With the project Expanded Field Recording BJ Nilsen investigates how the experience of landscape and time can be intensified and expanded by working with VR and 3D technologies. The locations and landscapes of interest are former industrial sites such as landfill sites and military sites, sites that have been repurposed and where the old function and the associated history are rendered invisible or only indirectly observable. Its traces are barely noticeable without technological extensions. The Expanded Field Recording aims to make the complex history of such places experienceable.
