Lecture: Re-Shaping t/dunes; Coastal Infrastructure as a sonic object


On the 5th of June Minji Kim (Unknown Kim) will present her research on Re-Shaping t/dunes; Coastal Infrastructure as a sonic object.

'Re-Shaping t/dunes’ aims to research acoustic communication between coastal infrastructure and the ecological environment when re-shaping dunes on the coast that have been eroded by environmental influences. In this talk session, I will address my research through ecological thinking, philosophical speculation, and sound art practices in the context of acoustic ecology and object-oriented ontology.


Minji Kim (aka. Unknown Kim) is a researcher and sound artist based in The Hague(NL) and Seoul(KR). She is a founder of the Eco-acoustic sound artist initiative Acoustic Territories and a half-part of the artist duo Qoo-Teq. Her work focuses on sound and music revealed via communication between environments and humans while exploring sounds of the Psycho-Geography. She is a graduate of ArtScience interfaculty, Royal Academy of Art&Royal Conservatoire the Hague, Master of Music(NL), and will start her PhD in Sonic Studies at Leiden University in September 2023.
