Jenna Sutela & Ville Haimala

eAR is a location-based augmented reality sound and text piece in the form of first-person fiction. It presents a series of dramatized field recordings from our digitally mediated environment together with commentary inspired by the Let’s Play format. eAR allows the listeners to reimagine their immediate surroundings via augmented hearing, and to take the scenic route through sound.

Sound by Ville Haimala, text by Jenna Sutela, design and programming by Harm van den Dorpel.

Finnish music producer and artist Ville Haimala currently lives and works in Berlin. With his background in architecture and electronic club music, he is now focusing on more experimental studio work. This work, produced under different monikers and often blurring the boundaries between music and contemporary art, has been presented and performed at various internationally acclaimed institutions including MoMA PS1 and Volksbühne in Berlin and events such as Unsound, Ultima and CTM Festivals.

Berlin-based Finnish artist Jenna Sutela’s installations, text and sound performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments – most recently, the relationship between the body and its technologically-mediated environment. Her work has been presented, among other places, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo and South London Gallery and writing published by, for example, Fiktion, Harvard Design Magazine and Sternberg Press.
