The Audio Guides Section

What/who inspired the work?

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope the viewers understand The Audio Guides Section From Davis Museum as a collection of field recordings that Davis Lisboa has been making during his visits to museums. The recordings have an approximate duration that varies from 10 to 60 minutes. As art museums are made to direct our gaze and minimize our sense of hearing -except when it provides us with an audioguide system designed to explain works of art- the intention of The Audio Guides Section From Davis Museum is opposed: denying its character didactic to reveal the subtle sound atmospheres that pass unnoticed by visitors.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
