Sandra Kazlauskaitė (b. Kaunas, Lithuania) is an artist and researcher working across the disciplines of performance, sound and video installation, as well as theory-led projects on sonic culture. Kazlauskaitė primarily constructs sonic collages and improvisations, collects field recordings, creates audiovisual artworks and creates non-musical objects. Her artistic interest lies within the immanence and materiality of sound, as well as its techno-mediated phenomenological potential. Currently, Kazlauskaitė is undertaking a research by practice Ph.D at Goldsmiths, London. In What Happens When Something Happens?, Kazlauskaitė revisits the spaces where she grew up, through sonic memories. She creates an encounter between her grandmother and the internet (google generated street images) in order to revoke her recollections of certain spatio-temporal encounters through chaotic sound structures, rather than linear visual narratives.http://sandra.unmute.eu
The Deep Splash is an online video platform producing and commissioning new videos centered on and around the concept of migration and exile. It started as a series of interviews with Lithuanian émigré artists, and soon expanded into conversations, studio visits and a showcase of video works by multinational artists, often based in several places at the same time. The ongoing archive of The Deep Splash can be seen as a constellation, a form of synthetic thinking, a video channel constantly layering new videos, questioning the very concept of national identity, migration and morphing of ideas, modes of artistic production and – sharing sources of inspiration.

The Deep Splash was founded by Justė Kostikovaitė and Johnston Sheard, curated by Monika Lipšic since 2017.
The project is supported by Lithuanian Council for Culture.
