Objectiveness of the Listener

Rotterdam, 2019

A project about the existence or non-existence of objectivity in daily life. I explored this matter by overhearing conversations. Everyday for two months I went to a randomly selected location to sit and listen; eavesdropping on (parts of) 

conversations and focussing on other vocal sounds nearby. In order to preserve objectivity as much as possible, I set myself clear rules on how to listen and take notes. Presenting these notes in a bare ‘non-suggestive’ manner, the goal was to leave room for interpretation and imagination. This resulted in a shift or derailment of meaning regarding the context. What is true, what is not?
