Liquid Architecture

Artist and writer Tessa Laird and curator Xenia Benivolski discuss how echo-location can act as metaphor, word play, and sonic stimulus; the double-sided notion of anthropomorphism; and interspecies cultures and resonance.


Tessa Laird’s essay 'Locating Echoes' attempts to bridge the existential void that separates us from bats. It is presented alongside video works by the artist and editor of our journal Disclaimer Liang Luscombe, and audio compositions created using bat samples by our editorial associate and former artistic director Joel Stern.

Co-commissioned by Liquid Architecture and E-Flux ‘Locating Echoes’ was developed for the latest chapter of You Can’t Trust Music (YCTM), a research project on sound and music, curated by Xenia Benivolski. The piece is featured in Chapter 3 of You Can’t Trust Music – ‘The Art of Possibly Animate Things'.
