ØYVIND BRANDTSEGG | 11.11.11 – GRENSEN SINSAKER
RESEARCH AS ART
Øyvind Brandtsegg is an artist. He lives in a cozy old house by the university campus. He invited us for coffee and chocolate, and we talked for two hours by the fire, about art and the political condition of public art. Øyvind is a sound artist. Øyvind generates site installations where sound becomes an added presence that transform our sense of space. Øyvind is also professor at the NTNU, where he teaches sound theory. We were amazed to have the chance to see (and hear) his new spatial performance, a minimal-cyborg-action, where Øyvind moves his gun-microphones around the place.
