A Circle of Wire and Vine (2016)
Plywood, tape recorder, field recordings
Catskill Zen Do,
This unique object acts as a sound chamber, embracing and entwining sonic and organic material in which they do not remain opposed nor dissolved and synthesized into an other singular thing. Any visitor is able to engage with the flat surface as they will by laying on it, sitting on it, walking past it, stepping on it, etc. Field recordings of the event imbue the sculpture with a time and history as we update the sound generated within with these new recordings. This is not done in relation to or interest in documentation, but what could be considered as granting to the object a self-awareness.
