Amplified Wind #1 & #2
Amplified Wind, Study #1 for MoMA PS1 Platforms exhibiton
Amplified Wind, Study #2 for Present Company Artspace as part of the Senses Bureau group exhibition
Fan, Shure SM 87 microphone
Amplified Wind, Study #1 & #2 considers how improvisation in sound can be presented in visual art forms. While the sculpture could be considered conceptual to some, the components of the piece can also be viewed as literal and unintentionally site sensitive.
The technical role of the microphone automatically creates a highlighted sonic field as each viewer becomes involved in the sculpture. As they navigate themselves around the sculpture the fan and microphone become the fixed focal point, with each space redefining the sonic outcome of each study.
