The author uses her exhibition Zvuk to explore ways in which sound within an exhibition of static visual art affects the overall sensory environment. Zvuk relates to the theme of anthropogenic noise and includes a 20 m panorama with surround sound. Independent evaluation reinforces the hypothesis that the visual and sonic images are strongly related.
