Hans Rosenström /Finland/
sound installation

Mikado is a sound installation based on a scene from Cries and Whispers, an Ingmar Bergman movie from 1972. Mikado presents a new angle to the original dialogue, the content of which has been modified into an idea about personal transformation. By using "three-dimensional sound", Rosenström places the viewer/listener in the midst of the narrative, staging a situation in which the viewer becomes an integral part of the work and is confronted with him/herself through the text. The work is four minutes long and is experienced alone.
