Haroon Mirza, Falling Rope, 2013.

Falling Rope by Haroon Mirza, 2013.

“It wasn’t surprising to hear that the most commonly used word for noise in Japan was noise. The word is relatively new anyway, it came about during the industrial revolution to describe the sound of machinery and is etymologically linked with the word nuisance. In Japan though, the imported word has little established relationship with pollution, anxiety and the idea of it being a nuisance, which might account for the aural culture in Japan being so fertile and fruitful. Listening is regarded just as highly as seeing.”
