Mother Nature’s Call
The permanent installation located in Haltia Nature Center, Espoo, Finland, is a nature sound concert, created as a surround sound installation and consisting of four parts: fire, water, earth and air. Mother Nature reigns everywhere, wind is her breath, water her blood, earth her flesh and fire her heart. Mother Nature rules and summons these four elements and their energies each in turn, which together bring about all life in her realm of nature. Hear and feel Mother Nature’s call all around you.
Kirsi has created a comprehensive sound design for the sound installation. The installation contains 22 speakers in the space, 4 on the ceiling, 5 on the floor, 8 on the walls and on three kelo wood poles and on 2 soft stones. The floor and stones shake to the rhythm of the sound. 23 rd channel is a channel connected to the hearing aid (induction loop), which automatically plays when entering the space in the hearing aid at the same pace as the vibrations of the space. A path has also been planned for the space, along which you can also reach the space with a wheelchair. The floors are designed with different softnesses, so that you can also lie down and relax on the floor. The atmosphere in the space is also brought by the 4k screen on the ceiling, which shows the starry sky.
