Immortal Silence

In 2011 Justyna Ataman created a series of sound works based in GSA Library as part of a public art project for 2nd Year Environmental Art. The works recorded the ambient noise of the Library at 4 pre-defined locations: the bottom of the main stairs, the DVD collection, shelfmark Fiction/KUN and shelfmark 750.92/DAL. The recordings were then added to Library collections as a CD, where they could be listened to by readers. Justyna also staged the event Make the Silence Speak in the Library, in which library users were encouraged to read aloud a sentence from whatever they were reading at a predetermined specific moment.
