Paul Panhuysen - Long Strings 1982-2011
An account of the production of Dutch composer and visual/sound artist Paul Panhuysens long string installations, which crossed a range of spaces in various ways and were, in fact, sound sculptures that could be played. Over a period of 30 years Panhuysen made more than 250 long string installations in many locations around the world, drawing attention to the perception of our environment and the ways in which its parameters are detected, transformed and analysed by our senses, simultaneously engaging both seeing and hearing. With an english introduction essay by art historian Jade Kuijper: ‘Structurally Sound’. Fully illustrated with coloured and black & white photos by Paul Panhuysen, Pieter Boersma a.o.
