Phd-prosjekt:

The Singing Bowl: Commodity, Artefact and Healing Instrument

Metal bowls produced in Nepal are used for healing and sound therapy world­wide. By following the sing­ing bowl from production, through sellers and buy­ers and to therapy rooms in Nepal and Norway, this re­search project explores how an artefact is constructed in a globalized field of alterna­tive medicine and religion.

Looking into the different stages in the life of the arte­fact, the project investigates how the singing bowl is be­coming a ritual and healing object. The singing bowl is approached as commodity, tourist souvenir, ritual item, medical and musical instru­ment. Further, the project investigates the relation be­tween human body, sound and artefact in the field of alternative medicine.
