Dimensions dependent on space

Microphone
XLR cable
Radio transmitter
Radio receivers


2.


Site-dependent installation, positioned between multiple shared areas of a three-story building.


3.


Exploring behaviour and awareness in public spaces, this work is first encountered through observation and/or interaction with a conspicuously positioned microphone. Using a microFM transmitter, the ambient and active sounds picked up by the microphone are broadcast into the surrounding environment. Then, using several battery powered radio receivers, the sounds of first space are made audible in a second space.

Variable Frequencies
2019




1.


Dimensions dependent on space

Copper cable
Radio transmitter
Radio receivers 


2.


A series of cable sculptures acting as antennas to broadcast sonic transmissions over a short-range radio network.


3.


In this work, variable lengths and configurations of thin copper cabling are installed within a space to form functional radio antennas. Audio recordings are broadcast and distributed by the structures, then received by nearby portable radio receivers. Interference from the surrounding environment creates an unstable and shifting connection to the signal.





Relative Distance

48” x 96”

Mirror
Webcam
Flat screen TV
Max/MSP software


2.


Installation contemplating and reflecting upon disembodiment of self, space and place.


3.


An exterior webcam is connected to a TV positioned inside a gallery space. Sound from the live feed can be heard before video can be seen, which in itself, is framed with a distorted reflection of the surrounding room. Movement picked up by the webcam triggers synthetic sounds that augment the soundscape of the built urban environment.

Dimensions variable

XLR cables
Gaffer tape
Sine oscillator
Loudspeakers


2.


Within a room engulfed by sine tones from multiple speakers, carefully positioned audio cables form circles to show where standing waves create auditory zones of loudness and quietness.

Constructed from a live performance, the two tracks for this recording were edited and shape-shifted in post-production, further blurring the line between stage and studio.
