We are pleased to have Seigen Ono lecture at the American University of Sharjah. Join Seigen as he talks about his Sharjah Biennial project Silence Spins, an infinite aural tearoom that seemingly does not reflect sound enabling one to relax and experience a Zen-like sensation similar to meditation.
Silence Spins is produced in partnership with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Shiro Takatani and is commissioned by the Sharjah Art Foundation.
This event is held in partnership with the Japan Foundation.
