Bernadette Johnson lives in Basel (Switzerland). She is author of acoustical poems and audio pieces for Radio and other listening rooms. In her audio-visual work as well, Johnson leads us through extrasemantic areas. Auditory perseption is observed, questioned and „disturbed“. It’s a matter of tracing otherwise parallel and hidden experience spaces.
