Sculpting Voice, Space Between, Headphone Space
these are all titles I love, for projects themes I work with.
Space Between refers to how we know the world through the stories told in the relationship space between people, objects, ideas. This intersecting space is full of momentum, communication, and feedback. Work in this category is object based. Sculptures are kinetic and built to be directly operated by people. As mediating objects, they physically reflect a relationship the between the operators (both in functionality and disfunctionality), using metaphors of sound.
Headphone Space refers to how mediating technologies affect/skew our perceptions. This category works specifically with headphones, as a familiar consumer device, that skews our perceptions with sound.
Sculpting Voice refers to structuring of noise to tell a story and viewing sound as a material that can be shaped. Work in this category is sound based, both instrumental and performative. A voice is as unique as a fingerprint and speaks in both presence and absence. People have a voice. Inventions have a voice. We tell each other's stories as we seek our own.
