The Only Thing that Makes Life Possible is Not Knowing What Comes Next
In this work in progress installation, sound artist Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon investigates how one’s perception of sound can be changed as he or she moves through space. Using an interconnected series of listening rooms, each built with modular walls composed of a variety of materials (stone, metal, wood, cloth, etc.), Gordon creates a perpetually shifting audio experience from diffused sound projected from a ring of loudspeakers. As listeners move through the space, they are made aware of the parameters of the room and how they can actually control what they are hearing by altering their movement.
