The first edition of grapefruits combines six artists under the topic Imaginary Sound. It refers to image, sound and the connection of both, as well as imagination. How to transform an idea into a medium? How to turn mental images into sound and vice versa? Maryanne Amacher's work imposes the question of how we imagine sound moving through space by experimenting with acoustic illusions such as the third ear. For their project String Figures on Inuit culture Alessandra Leone and Zoë McPherson intertwine image and sound. Pauline Oliveros found a way to transform inner sounds she was listening to by means of electronic music. Daphne Oram invented a machine to translate visual drawings into sound. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith always composes for an image in her mind or in her surroundings.
