Eirik Johnson, Madre De Dios, 2010, light box and sound installation
Eirik Johnson’s Madre De Dios premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MA in 2010. Old ghost ranges… features a selection of three light boxes from this project. Each light box gradually illuminates the long-exposure photographs from the Peruvian Amazon. During the photographic exposures, ambient sound was simultaneously recorded at the same locations. Each light box gradually illuminates for the duration of the exposure while ambient sound from that location is amplified throughout the space. The result is transportive and encompassing.
