HISS is a poetic work and in its core lies our relationship to nature. The work is grounded in the fields of acoustic ecology and listening practices and pays attention to surrounding soundscapes. HISS is an inquiry of the North Bohemian region in the Czech Republic, an area marked with the heavy coal mining industry (surface mining of brown coal) for over two centuries. There are major devastations and changes in the relief of the landscape - considering that some of the industries are still up and running, while others are closing down and in the process of the land-recovery. There is a number of villages and rivers that were physically moved and removed in favor of the economical growth.
Designed in multiple scenes, Realness - Cloud and Dust is an artificial space of vegetal luxuriance with semi-humanoid growths. A virtual fantasy of a symbiosis between the human being and his natural environment. With her dual philosophical and artistic training, Sandrine Deumier constructed a multifaceted poetry focused on the issue of technological change and the performative place of poetry conceived through new technologies. Using material from the word as image and the image as a word vector, she also works at the junction of video and sound poetry considering them as sensitive devices to express a form of unconscious material itself. The process of writing and the mobile material of the image function as underlying meanings of reflux which refer to the real flickering and to their reality transfers via unconscious thought structures. Her work consists mainly of texts, digital poetry, multimedia installations and audiovisual performances in collaboration with composers.
