Excerpts from a video and sound installation originally conceived for CPU at ESC im Labor, Graz, Austria, October 2008.
The prototype consists of a close analysis of three faces of indigenous people from Sarawak… two from the Kenyan community who had been relocated from where the Bakun Dam is being built and a Bidayuh woman from where the Bengoh Dam is proposed to inundate.
The soundscape was generatively created from a piece that ran for 9 days. It consists of field recordings made from Iban longhouse communities in 1999.
The entire prototype ran looped at 45 minute intervals utilising the largest projection surface possible within the ESC gallery.
