In 2006 Karl Van Welden initiated United Planets, a cycle of visual and performative work based on terrestrial of human presence in the universe. How does humankind relate to the immensity of the universe? His off-cycle work is smaller in scale but covers the same thematic approach. In his new installation Column he continues his exploration of volcanoes and the consequences of an eruption. Volcanic action produces a variety of sounds and many of those sounds are below the frequency limit of human hearing. In Column Karl uses the different volcano acoustics to produce a column of ash. Every time the column is linked to a different eruption by using the specific audio recordings.
