Abstract

This thesis investigates and argues for 'sound works in contemporary art practices'. In this context, it is a study on the works by Jody Elff, Susan Philipsz, Ann Lislegaard, and Laurie Anderson, from three particular exhibitions, namely, "New York New Sound New Spaces", "Audible Light", "The Record of The Time". In each chapter, a particular work is considered, not simply in terms of the work 'itself', but also in terms of the experience of the work. Both suggest the discussion of the internal and the external dynamics of the works. Therefore the aim of this thesis is not to find a possible definition of what a sound work is. However the intention is to consider the possible indications, proposals, extensions and expansions of a sound work.
