Ralf Broeg, Senior Lecturer in Fine Art (Sculpture), Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries, University of Sunderland
A key aspect of Broeg's research over the years looks at new ways of distributing and presenting art and art-related material. Within this research area, Broeg has employed a wide range of medias, formats, structures, and strategies, such as multi-media sculpture/installation, curating, magazine publishing, or running a gallery.
For the project of the 3 ModelRooms, Broeg is using sound as sculptural and architectural material in public spaces. The work challenges ways in which a synthesis of technologies, disciplines, formats and categories can open new territories for innovation, creativity, cooperation, and interactivity in the public realm. It presents sound as sculptural material in a dynamic, fluid, and time-based way. The research engages with the diverse nature of the audiences in this specific/functional non-art context.
