NATURE VS NURTURE: SHAPING THE URBAN SOUNDSCAPE
IKLECTIK Art Lab is a creative space dedicated to the support of experimental, interdisciplinary contemporary art, an engine for bringing about a focused environment for the arts and social development.
IKLECTIK Art Lab is glad to introduce SOUND YARD, an open air platform to exhibit artworks in an urban oasis, where sound waves could interact and shape the space, challenging different surfaces and atmospheric conditions.
We are constantly harassed by extremely loud noises and sounds from urban environments. As a consequence, the daily urban soundscape nurtures us with subliminal inputs that we absorb and metabolize.
After the call out, SOUND YARD is proud to announce the eight artists that through six exhibitions will face the dichotomy of the World we live in, divided between Nature and Nurture :
Benford & Olins
Daniel James Ross
Julie Pickard & Seth Scott
Natural, urban, abstract and processed sounds will be questioned through installations and ideas that integrate into but also challenge IKLECTIK’s garden.

The first exhibition will host DAN KNIGHT’s Prototype Number Two: an interactive installation to be played by the public, that aims to study rounded tones generated by bottles and create therefore an immersive and relaxing atmosphere, escaping the urban environment.
Dan Knight’s exhibition will be open on the 12th July.
The opening of the exhibition and the presentation of SOUND YARD platform will take place on Friday 15th July, from 7pm at IKLECTIK Art Lab.
