O dB


Decibel (dB) : A unit that indicates the ratio of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity) relative to a specified or implied reference level, generally assumed to be a sound unit.In this literature, 0 dB is defined as the human threshold of hearing.

“0dB” fundamentally investigates the intensity of unmanned spaces. Being the minimum value for hearing for humans, in fact; “0dB”expresses the limit of human perception. So, the sounds and vibrations at “0dB” echoes in lonely places that I pursue. This book is the last stage of a project that I’ve been working on for more than four or five years.

There is the state of nonexistence where no one exists. As Hakan Bıçakcı says, ‘When there is no one around, the possibility of having a person around is terrifying.

0 dB is a situation related with human limitation which means the boundaries. These boundaries are surrounded with words and experiences. People are unable to dream the unseen, unable to listen to the unheard. Therefore, we just need to push our minds to dream of what the words and voices behind the boundaries are saying.

We call ”0” for our lowest level of hearing. We define the bottom line regarding our boundaries skipping the unheard sounds that surround us, being unaware of the sounds of ideas and memories.
