Noise Intercepted Collaborators

Andréa de Keijzer - Dancer/Choreographer/Photographer


Montréal, Canada

Why do I want to participate?

Because I love all Labspace projects and feel that these kinds of challenges will open doors to creative ideas that I wouldn't arrive to otherwise.



beating around the ISLANDNoise Challenge #1: The Pulse

The fact that Montreal is an island has always fascinated me. This is the first time that I have lived on an island. You can’t go too far without arriving at water. In 10 minutes by bike I can arrive at the north shore. In 25 minutes by bike I can arrive to the south shore. I have yet to go east and west. It will take longer.

This is a composite using images of the STM (Montreal’s Metro System) and from my friend’s placenta. She gave birth not long ago and I was there to document. These are some of the most beautiful colours I have ever seen.

Island, river, placenta, heart, beat.
