Conversation between Bodies is a collaboration between Daniel Slåttnes and Sara Rönnbäck that has been going on since 2015.

In the project, we investigate ways of communication and the limits of understanding the materials as radical non-humans, and each other as fundamentally estranged by nature.

In a performance we wear masks, which also functions as EEG devices. The devices record electrical signals created by our brains and translate it into sound.

The sculptures carry similar devices that act as amplifiers for the materials’ electromagnetic fields, which also are translated to sound.

In the overall sound, we imagine a super-organism together with the materials and the space.
