An investigation of place
Reflecting on space
Sound filling our bodies
Sitting and listening
Moving beyond perception
From city to city
The field opening around us

Based upon paying close attention to his surroundings, In Place documents the artist's sonorous engagement with specific locations. Spending hours at a given place within various cities, Kahn would do nothing else but listen, watch, and observe the daily life. Through such an elongated duration, sometimes up to 12 hours, a deeper and richer sense of place emerges. In Place is an elegant and thoughtful reflection on these experiences, capturing those small details that ultimately compose the world around us. Turning his ear to the daily life around him, Kahn's diaristic accounts capture an extremely tenacious form of attention—a bare listening.
