How can something immaterial take shape and occupy space? Music and sound refer to the category of affections, the aesthetic information they contain is substantially untranslatable and transcends language. Over the past decade, Ursula Nistrup has worked in a number of different media with a distinct focus on sound and its relation to space, in the attempt to give to the former a perceivable shape through the mediation of images, language and architecture. Between the pages of the book, as if they were the supporting walls of a tale or the pauses in a composition, four different sheets of handmade paper are inserted, each with a distinctive tone, composition, weight, surface and sound they make when shaken. All together they compose a new work Tonepaper, which as a musical instrument represents the shape and space of a sound.
