Luca Forcucci


Luca Forcucci (PhD) lives and works in Switzerland and Berlin. His research observes the perceptive properties of sound, space and memory. The field of possibilities of the first person experience is explored as the artwork. In this context, he is interested in perception, subjectivity and consciousness. The works are sound installations, sound walks, performances, videos, photography and texts. A great influence is the late American avant-garde composer and musician Pauline Oliveros and her concept of deep listening expanded to all what is humanly possible to listen to. Since 2008, he collaborates with scientists in the field of neuroscience, perception and biology, and is particularly fascinated by visual mental imagery as sonic imagination. Forcucci has lived in Lausanne, Geneva, Milan, Belfast, Paris, Shanghai and Berlin with frequent expeditions in Brazil and South Africa. His own artistic research includes and observes then the possibility to live within a constraint of 23 kg luggage, a hand luggage and a laptop folder, and how this translates into his work, by observing the relationship between the author and the beholder/listener.
