Johannes S. Sistermanns (GER)

Sistermanns’ Trans-Tide considers the tide below our feet. Developed for the five interconnected drains along the pedestrian High St Mall, this sound work will feature a recorded composition sampled from a wastewater treatment plant. Individual speakers will be concealed in the cavity of the drains and will be activated by motion sensors as pedestrians interact with the work.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding body and advisory body. Trans-Tide is supported by the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts. The artist is supported by Quest Fremantle.
