With time, places of mo­bil­i­ty, es­pe­cial­ly those used in our dai­ly com­mutes, lose their sen­su­al pow­er. As we re­peat­ed­ly en­counter them, we block out the ac­tions that we per­form hun­dreds of times, the sounds, smells, and vi­su­al stim­uli that we per­ceive in these places we re­turn to on a dai­ly ba­sis.

The ba­sis of Jonas Hohnke’s work as an artist is al­ways the lo­cal sit­u­a­tion: in this case, the clos­ing of a car door, the start­ing of a car, and the sound of a car driv­ing away. Us­ing a field record­ing, he con­cen­trates these sounds of mo­bil­i­ty on a vi­su­al­iz­able sound­track that re­flects the typ­i­cal back­ground noise of the park­ing garage. As an ex­ten­sion of the blue wall mark­ing, this sound­scape reen­ters the space in a clear­ly per­cep­ti­ble form, ex­pand­ed in­to an­oth­er medi­um.

Jonas Hohnke stud­ied sculp­ture at the Kun­stakademie Münster and grad­u­at­ed in 2015 as a mas­ter class stu­dent of Prof. Guil­laume Bi­jl and Prof. Ayşe Erk­men.
