Mononen, Sini (TuY): Auditory representations of stalking in audiovisual art
I am working with the questions on representations of violence, particularly stalking (suom. vainoaminen), in audiovisual art. I am interested in the sound representations as a part of the audiovisual whole. Stalking is examined as a type of violence typical for the culture based on new technology, starting from the late 20th century until present day, and treated as a violence based on victim's experience. The main question of my study is how the strategies of stalking can be heard and interpret in the art, and how artwork resembles violence. My theoretical background rises from cultural musicology, film and television studies, aesthetics and ontology of artwork / object.
