[Past Events 2015] Seminar by Sven Anderson: 'Establishing the Identity of the Urban Acoustic Planner'

This event forms part of the Soundspace Seminar Series, open to all Masters and PhD students at Queen's University Belfast. 

Sven Anderson is an artist working between Ireland and the US since 2001. Anderson's work explores the act of listening within diverse architectural, physical, social, and emotional contexts. His practice is a discursive platform that operates through artistic intervention, academic publication, participatory processes, and interactive design.  He is currently working on a public art commission titled 'MAP: Manual for Acoustic Planning and Urban Sound Design', which won the European Soundscape Award in 2014.  The project explores the field of urban acoustic planning through a sustained artist placement within Dublin City Council, working to produce public outputs in the form of permanent urban sound installations alongside an ongoing institutional intervention through which a more discursive framework might emerge.
