'Intelligence' is a piece of sound art that communicates with its audience on new terms - through sound, and through the absence of sound. 'Intelligence' consists of a tarpaulin which is filled with water and suspended from the ceiling. Next to the 'water tank' are two sets of head-phones linked to hydrophones (underwater microphones), which are submerged in the water. When you put on the earphones, you can hear the sound under water - If there is any sound. The aural vacuum needs to be filled in by the audience – either by touching or speaking into the work. In other words, you will hear the sound of yourself. When both headphones are used, 'Intelligence' turns into a communication tool operating on new terms.

'Intelligence' (Rosan Bosch) was presented at exhibitions in Antwerpen (BE), Randers Art Museum (DK), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde (DK) and at the exhibition 'integration?' in Lunds Kunsthall (SE) - alongside with 'Kom och Fika' (Bosch og Fjord), Forum (Rosan Bosch) and 'Sound Detour' (Rosan Bosch).
