How do you describe an overwhelming emotion like loneliness? Is loneliness a grappling affliction or an invitation to look inward and grow?
Spoken-word artist Ozan Aydogan brings words and music together to seek answers while reflecting on his own turbulent experiences with loneliness. His first binaural album, Prachtige Wezens (Magnificent Beings) has been spatially interpreted into a physical installation in collaboration with designers Vincent de Boer and Hans Schuttenbeld.
In the first episode of our LIMELIGHT series, we're taking you along on a meandering walk through the installation, along with Ozan. We talk about his influences, intimacy and his take on dealing with loneliness.
